The Seahawks Tuesday waived injured tight end Anthony McCoy less than a week after he underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon. It’s expected that he will clear waivers, after which the Seahawks will place him on injured reserve, using the roster spot for an active player.
The club’s sixth-round pick (185th overall) in the 2010 NFL draft, McCoy partially tore his hamstring on the first day of organized team activities (OTAs) last week. He is expected to miss six to nine months, making him unlikely to play in 2013.
McCoy in 2012 established career highs with 18 catches, 291 receiving yards and three touchdowns as the Seahawks’ No. 2 tight end. He played in 34 games in in Seattle career, making 14 starts.
The Seahawks announced the signing of rookie offensive tackle Jake Bscherer, who took part in a Seattle mini camp May 10-12. Bscherer spent three years at Wisconsin before transferring to Minnesota-Duluth for his senior season, when he was named to the All-NSIC team in his only year with the Bulldogs.
Frustrating news for McCoy. Hope he can come back from this.
