Seattle TE Anthony McCoy suffers possibly serious Achilles injury

Share/Save/Bookmark

RENTON, Washington — Tight end Anthony McCoy left Seattle Seahawks practice on Tuesday after being helped to a cart and the team fears he could have a serious Achilles injury to his left leg.

McCoy was hurt late in the practice. He was face-down on the field for several minutes before limping to a cart.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the initial diagnosis is that McCoy's injury is significant and that it's on the opposite leg of a previous torn Achilles that cost him all of last season. McCoy injured the Achilles on his right leg during offseason workouts before the 2013 season.

Left guard James Carpenter (calf) and linebacker Bobby Wagner (hamstring) were both pulled out of drills on Tuesday after feeling discomfort. Carroll did not believe either was serious.
