The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday. While rumors are swirling regarding head coach Dirk Koetter’s job status, the team may have lost one of his best defensive players for the rest of the season.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who has been with the team through many losing seasons, believes he suffered a torn biceps injured on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. This, if it’s confirmed, would be the third time in his NFL career that he has torn his biceps.

As a rookie, he tore his left bicep. Then, in his second year, he tore his right bicep.

Since he already knows what it feels like, we have to take his word for it. He would then miss the final three games against the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints in the regular season finale.

McCoy is a difference maker on the defensive side of the ball. They are already weak on the defensive side of the ball with talent, which this is definitely going to be a tough blow.

But with the Buccaneers already eliminated from making the playoffs, they are just riding out of the season now. Just months ago, the expectation was that they were going to make the playoffs and be a serious Super Bowl contender with their off-season acquisitions, yet they are going nowhere.
