McCoy Says His Torn Bicep Is 100% Healthy

The Tampa Trib reports that DT Gerald McCoy is ready to go after tearing his bicep at the end of last season, and he is at about 300 pounds.

DT Gerald McCoy has been rehabbing the biceps tear that ended his season after 13 games and three sacks, all of which came in his last four games after moving to under tackle. He is “100-percent healed” from the injury and has grown stronger while taking off weight. “I’m right at 300 pounds now, and it’s a good 300 pounds,” McCoy said. “I left for the offseason last year at 310, but it wasn’t good weight. I’d never been 300-plus before. Coach (Morris) even told me, ‘You don’t have to be heavy. You need to be the most in-shape guy on the field, one of the fastest guys on the field.’ So this offseason I’ve been working on speed, quickness and losing weight. I’ve been slimming down. But I’ve been building muscle so I can hold those double teams even though I’m a smaller guy.”
