Achilles injury hits Seattle's TE depth

Otto Greule Jr

Seahawks tight end Anthony McCoy needed surgery to repair a partially torn Achilles tendon tear. The back up to Zach Miller last season, McCoy was ranked the 12th best pass catching tight end by NFL.com. Though his run-blocking was suspect, he gave Russell Wilson an effective target.

"NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Friday that McCoy went under the knife Thursday and is expected to miss at least six to nine months, according to a person briefed on his injury. McCoy simply was running when the injury occurred, according to RapSheet..." - via NFL.com's Marc Sessler

It seems like there's a certain injury pops up every year that sweeps through the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers' Michael Crabtree went down with the same injury only days ago. Hopefully these two players aren't the start of an epidemic like foot injuries seemed to be in 2012.

McCoy will be out 6 to 9 months, so it looks like rookie Luke Wilson will get some serious looks going into training camp. Like any injured player, let's hope Anthony McCoy gets well soon.
