Gerald McCoy out for season

Gerald McCoy injury

Cowboys defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has suffered a knee injury during training camp on Monday. It was originally believed to be an ACL tear, but an MRI confirmed a ruptured quad tendon. This injury will still keep him off the field for the entire 2020 season.

The NFL’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

The veteran defensive lineman will be entering his 11th season of NFL service in 2020. Before playing for the Panthers in 2019, he spent nine seasons as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. This year would have been his first in a Cowboys uniform.

Last season, McCoy played and started in all 16 games for the Panthers, sacking the quarterback five times. He also collected 37 combined tackles. A six-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro selection in 2013, he is expected to bring leadership to a talented Cowboys front seven.
