RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks have lost backup tight end Anthony McCoy for possibly the entire 2013 season after he sustained a torn Achilles during an organized team activity earlier this week.
The Seahawks confirmed McCoy injury on Friday, which was first reported by USA Today. McCoy has already undergone surgery to repair the injury and recovery time is typically six to nine months.
McCoy went limping off the field late in Monday's OTA that was open to the media. Trainers examined his ankle on the field before using a cart to take him into the team's practice facility. Coach Pete Carroll had limited information after practice ended and believed it was an ankle injury.
McCoy was entering his fourth season with the Seahawks. Last year, he had a career best 18 catches and three touchdowns.
