Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy will see his season end early for the second year in a row with a biceps injury.

McCoy tore his right biceps in Sunday's loss to the Saints and is out for the season. He had missed the previous two games with an ankle injury.

McCoy went on injured reserve during his rookie season with a torn left biceps last December. In six starts this season, McCoy made 11 tackles and one sack. McCoy's backup, Frank Okam, was inactive Sunday with a calf injury, and the team may need to sign a veteran defensive tackle.

On Monday, Bucs head coach Raheem Morris compared McCoy to another early-round pick who has had some injury troubles.

"That's football," said Morris. "Matt Stafford missed two seasons for the Detroit Lions and he's probably playing his best football right now. He's got to come back, he's got to rehab, he's got to get his mind right and come back ready to play, and be ready to play a 16-game season."
