Former Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy’s football season is over after just one game.
It’s the second straight season that an injury ended his season early.
McCoy sustained a knee injury in the Las Vegas Raiders’ Monday Night Football victory over Baltimore.
The injury was reported Wednesday by NFL insider Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport called it “a season-ending injury” … and “the team announced it as a knee.”
On his first day of training camp last year with the Dallas Cowboys, McCoy suffered a torn quadriceps muscle and missed the whole season.
McCoy, 33, was a six-time Pro Bowler with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spent the 2019 season with Carolina before his one-year free agent contract with the Cowboys.
McCoy was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. After earning Parade All-American’s national defensive player of the year at Oklahoma City’s Southeast High School, he redshirted his first season at OU, then became a three-time All-Big 12 performer and two-time All-American.
