“I’m excited,” McCray said. “I’m trying to save it for Sunday. I trying to keep a level head and not think about it too much. I’m sure when I wake up Sunday morning it will be something different.”
McCray has been getting all the reps in practice with the starters and says he will be prepared.
So he won’t be nervous. He just wants to make sure he does everything right.
“Knowing what to do or not getting reps in practice won’t be an excuse,” McCray said.
McCray played the majority of the game against the Seahawks with Sensabaugh and Barry Church sidelined with injuries. He played a team-high 74 snaps if you include his special teams work.
McCray still wants to cover kicks and punts against the Buccaneers because “that’s my thing.”
But he said his load might be lessoned if has to do many more back to back to backs as he did last week when he covered a punt, played on a long drive on defense and then was on kickoff return after they give up a touchdown.
