McCoy out 6-9 months with Achilles tear

Seahawks tight end Anthony McCoy will be out 6-9 months after suffering an Achilles tendon injury this week, as was first reported by USA Today.

The Seahawks since confirmed the news.

McCoy was apparently injured  during Monday’s OTA, which was open to the media. He went down late in the practice with the injury.

McCoy was slated to be the backup tight end to Zach Miller, but see lots of action in two-tight end sets.

He played in all 18 games last season, making 18 catches for 291 yards and three touchdowns.

The injury to McCoy will likely put a lot more pressure to develop quickly on fifth-round draft pick Luke Willson, who was an early standout in the team’s rookie mini-camp and in Monday’s OTA.

Other tight ends on the roster are veterans Sean McGrath and Cooper Helfet and undrafted free agent Victor Marshall.
