The nature of McCoy's injury is unknown as of Monday. Head coach Mike McCarthy will hold his next press conference on Tuesday at 7:15 am. However, The coach has already shown that he prefers to keep injury situations relatively vague without revealing much detail.

Veteran Dontari Poe, who is expected to start inside next to McCoy, is also rehabbing an injury and has yet to practice during camp.
