Third Buccaneers’ MRSA Case ConfirmedOctober 11th, 2013
Per Buccaneers.com, “a third Tampa Bay Buccaneers player has been diagnosed with a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection.”
This is really getting ugly. The Bucs just can’t seem to get a handle on this dangerous MRSA mess.
Lawrence Tynes and Carl Nicks were before the season, and the Nicks is re-infected and now a third case (at least) looms. Bucs rockstar general manager has a scheduled news conference on the MRSA mess shortly.
Per the Bucs, “Duke Infection Control Outreach Network (DICON) Co-Director Dr. Deverick J. Anderson, recognized as the country’s leading authority on infections disease control, addressed the team and Buccaneers staff earlier on Friday. Over the past two months the Buccaneers organization has been working with the world-renowned DICON and other infectious disease specialists to treat and educate its players, sanitize its training facility and install new health and safety protocol.”
