Bucs lose Gerald McCoy, Quincy Black for the season

Tampa’s thrilling win in Washington came with a heavy price.

Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times reports that defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (torn biceps) and linebacker Quincy Black (broken) arm will both miss the rest of the season after getting hurt on Sunday.

The Bucs have lost six starters to season-ending injury in the last three weeks.  The team’s young defense has especially been battered.

At 8-5, Tampa heads home to face the Lions and Seahawks over the next two weeks before heading on the road to New Orleans.
