Seahawks waive inured TE McCoy, sign tackle

The Seattle Seahawks waived injured tight end Anthony McCoy Tuesday less  than a  week after  he underwent  surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon. McCoy suffered the injury during last week’s organized team activities.

If  he clears waivers, McCoy will be placed on injured reserve. The three-year
pro  is  expected to  miss up to  nine months with  the injury, which occurred
during team offseason training activities.

A  sixth-round pick  of Seattle in the  2010 draft, McCoy is coming off a 2012
season  in  which he established  career highs  with 18 catches, 291 receiving
yards and three touchdowns as the Seahawks’ No. 2 tight end.

Seattle signed tackle Jake Bscherer to fill the roster spot. The former university of Wisconsin and Minnesota-Duluth player was at the Seahawks rookie mini-camp as a tryout player.
