An MRI revealed that Bucs’ DT Vita Vea has a sprained LCL that could sideline him 6-to-8 weeks, per sources. Good part is, Vea already is moving around well, so Bucs not ready to rule him out of opener.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 9, 2019 This puts Vea on track to return earlier in the season. Though, he’s expected to miss at least a couple of regular-season games.

Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp took issue with that, pointing out the Bucs never went to the playoffs in McCoy’s nine seasons in Tampa.

“The way I look at it, the thing that kind of threw me sideways was Gerald talking about now that this organization doesn’t have a right [to give away his 93 jersey], or it’s business that they moved on,” Sapp said on pewterreport.com’s podcast. “You know . . . they moved on. And then he wanted to say that Sapp, [Derrick] Brooks, Lee Roy [Selmon], [John] Lynch, Ronde [Barber], nobody wore their numbers. Last time I checked, those were Hall of Famers and champions. We didn’t go to one playoff game with [McCoy] and not one damn divisional title, so, I think he owes some of those hundred million dollars back in that sense.

No defensive player of the year, and that’s what Brooks and that’s what Lee Roy Selmon did. Lynch got his name in two damn Ring of Honors. What am I missing here, Gerald? You’re talking about something silly. Come on, man. Stop. If you’re mad, you’re mad, but don’t put it on the organization that the organization did it. Every NFL team has to move on.”

Will the Bucs add McCoy’s name to their Ring of Honor one day? Their Ring has 13 names in it, and all nine players on the list played at least one postseason game while in Tampa.

McCoy gets a chance for revenge with two games against the Bucs this season, having signed with division rival Carolina.

Bills' McCoy ordered to pay $55K to officer hurt in 2016 bar fight Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy and former Pittsburgh running back Tamarcus Porter have each been ordered to pay $55,000 to Philadelphia police officer Roland Butler, who was injured in a 2016 bar fight with the two players.
