During the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the NY Giants, UT’s former QB went out of the game with an injury.
On Tuesday, Colt Mccoy emotionally spoke out about his sprained neck injury. This injury had put him on the injured reserved list which has ended his season early.
McCoy said, “I’m pretty emotional about it, because I do fell comfortable here. I fell that Jay and Sean and I see eye-to-eye on a whole lot of things and see the field the same way, and I felt like there were a lot of positive things ahead for me. And I’m not saying there isn’t still; I’m just frustrated that I’m not going to finish the season up with my teammates.”
McCoy hasn’t been an official starter QB since 2011, but in the most recent games, he was placed to start ahead of RGIII. With McCoy on IR, RGIII has taken his starter position back.
It is reported that McCoy originally had hurt his neck two games ago against the St. Louis Rams in the fourth quarter. The injury was basically aggravated on Sunday during a drive against the NY Giants.
McCoy said, “I felt like we had them right where we wanted them last week, and it’s just unfortunate. And it’s almost hard for me to talk about because I know what good things were coming.”
McCoy spent Monday undergoing tests regarding his injury. It was than that the doctors informed him that continuing with the season wasn’t not in his best interest.
The good thing about it all is it is not expected to be anything “long-termed” and he should fully heal.
