Nicks “Has A Purpose About Him”August 27th, 2013
So how’s All-Pro guard Carl Nicks dealing with a scary staph infection in his foot?
Greg Schiano said today that Nicks is progressing. But Davin Joseph took it a step further, telling Joe that Nicks is at One Buc Palace daily doing what he can to recover and prepare, though not yet practicing.
“You see him coming in every day. He has a purpose about him,” Joseph said.
Joseph stressed that he and his teammates have been telling Nicks to not rush and take whatever time/means necessary to return healthy.
This is good news. Joe was unsure whether Nicks was laid up with his foot elevated and unable to do anything, or whether he was up and about and doing something.
If Nicks comes back healthy in Week 6, after the Bucs’ Week 5 bye week, Joe would consider that a blessing.
