Lions rookie Larry Warford ready for Bucs speed-rusher Gerald McCoy

Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, coming off his first Pro Bowl season, has five sacks in the last two games. Although he will move from side to side along the line, he will be matched with rookie right guard Larry Warford most of the time Sunday.

"Great player," Warford said. "He's quick, explosive, experienced, and lately he's been going off. He's on the up right now. I will have to be at the top of my game this week, for sure."

Warford said the chief concern is McCoy's speed.

"He's real quick," he said. "His get-off is good and that is tough because you want to get off as fast as he does, and that can get you off-balance once in a while. I have to be really good on my technique as far as keeping my head back and not lunging too much."
