Seahawks Lose Tight End Anthony McCoy to Achilles Injury
This will be the second year in a row that the USC product has injured an Achilles tendon in training camp.
NFL.com’s Ian Rappaport made the announcement via Twitter.

McCoy was a major contributor during the Seahawks’ 11-5 season in 2012, but sat out last season after tearing his right Achilles tendon. He was released injured, but re-signed and spent 2013 on injured reserve.
Seattle has starter Zack Miller and backup Luke Willson on the roster, and expected McCoy to be a part of the tight end picture in 2014. So much so that the Seahawks took a pass on Green Bay free agent Jermichael Finley.
