Seahawks tight end Anthony McCoy, who is battling for the backup job this season, injured his Achilles tendon during Tuesday’s practice, according to coach Pete Carroll.
McCoy missed all of last season with an Achilles injury, but Carroll said the “early indications” are that McCoy injured his other Achilles. He was carted off the field during practice after staying down on the field for a few minutes.
“If it is what they think it is, it’s just a real heartbreaker,” Carroll said. “He worked so hard to get back.”
