Gerald McCoy out with hand injury

TAMPA, Fla. - Buccaneers All-Pro defensive tackle Gerald McCoy left Sunday's game against St. Louis with a hand injury and will not return.

McCoy left the game briefly and went to the locker room. He came back with his hand heavily wrapped and re-entered the game. But that was only for a brief moment and he came back off the field just before the game was delayed by lightning in the second quarter.

The game was stopped with 6:03 remaining in the half and the score tied 7-7. Officials estimated the game will be delayed about 30 minutes.
