McCoy talks for the first time since injury….



“I’m glad I hadn’t talked to you guys until now because I’ve just been in the tank,” he said. “I never missed a practice, never missed a game. I kind of pride myself on that a little bit. It’s part of it. My dad was a coach. You just don’t miss unless something’s broke.” 

“As a competitor and a quarterback, that’s all you want,” he said. “You want to play. You want to be involved. I’m doing everything I can to get back out there as fast as I can. It’s killing me more than it ever has. 

“Even though we lost two games, we really felt, as a team, we were really getting close. We beat Carolina, which was great, and we have a big [game] this week. Hopefully, we’ll get a good report at the first of next week and go from there.” 

“The recovery, the rehab, everything has been going really good,” he said. “We’ll wait and see how it feels after the weekend.” 

“You can’t let it affect you so much that you’re not involved with your team or your coaches, so I’ve really plugged into that,” he said. “I watch as much film as I always do, and I’m interacting with my teammates. I’m still involved as much as you can be while you’re doing rehab.” 

But he wasn’t about to get drawn into a quarterback controversy when asked if he will be re-installed as the starter when healthy. 

“I’m not even going to go there,” he said. “My focus is to get my foot right. What happens then, I don’t know. It’s just a bummer. I just have to go out there and make sure it feels OK.” 

“I think it’s a positive because a lot of the things we do as quarterbacks are on your right foot,” he said. “The doctor said from the very beginning that you can’t put a time frame on something like this because every person is different. Even with a high ankle, there’s still things that are different from mine than were from Jake’s or Seneca’s.” 

McCoy did whatever he could to help Delhomme during the Panthers game — even if he felt a little funny doing it. 

“[Delhomme has] played for 15 years, so sometimes it’s hard to say, ‘Did you see that?’, but I help him out if I can,” said McCoy. “Jake can play on any team in the NFL. The guy’s a veteran, he’s a pro, he knows what he’s doing. I’m just glad to have somebody like him around here. He’s been huge for me.”
