Bucs DT Gerald McCoy back at practice
Good news on the Bucs injury front, as defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who sat out practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a foot injury that had him wearing a boot after Sunday's win against Seattle, was back practicing on Friday morning.
McCoy had said Tuesday that he would be playing in San Diego on Sunday and "ready to rock," but his absence during the two main days of practice preparation raised a flag about his status for Sunday. It now reads like the Bucs were being overly cautious to give his foot extra rest.
The Bucs had safety Ryan Smith (shoulder) and tight end Brandon Myers (hip) practicing again on Friday, as well as practice-squad WR Josh Huff, who could be elevated to the active roster to make his Bucs debut on Sunday.
