With Gerald McCoy writhing on the ground in agony on the soft grass of Candlestick Park, the Buccaneers had every reason to fear the worst Sunday afternoon. Tampa Bay's second-year defensive tackle clutched his tender left ankle late in the opening quarter after his leg was caught under a pile on Frank Gore's 4-yard run off right guard. A few tense minutes later, McCoy was helped off the field as concerned teammates watched him hobble to the sidelines. Although McCoy wasn't in Tampa Bay's locker room after a humbling 48-3 loss to the surging 49ers, several teammates indicated the injury might be relatively minor. "Until he gets back, I trust that (reserve defensive tackles) Frank Okam and Roy Miller will step up,'' guard Davin Joseph said. "I'm just happy it's not worse than what it is.''
