BSPN: Carl Nicks Could Miss A MonthAugust 19th, 2013
Blistergate has now sounded an alarm heard across the nation.
Carl Nicks’ newly infected foot blister, not his surgically repaired foot/toe, could keep the All-Pro guard out a month, reports BSPN NFL guru Adam Schefter, via RotoWorld.com.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on NFL Insiders Monday that Bucs LG Carl Nicks (toe infection) “could miss about a month, based on what I’m being told.”Nicks is dealing with an “infected blister” on the same toe that he injured midyear last season, costing Nicks the final nine games. The Bucs need to take their time in order to avoid future setbacks, so Nicks is looking highly doubtful for Week 1. If he misses a month from now, Nicks could still be back early in the season. Look for Ted Larsen to stand in at left guard.
