More MRSA?October 10th, 2013
If a report from NFL Insider Mark Garafolo is to be believed, MRSA may have reappeared in the Bucs locker room.
@MikeGarafolo Bucs GM Mark Dominik tells @FOXSports1 the infectious disease specialist working w/ Nicks believes it’s a reoccurrence of initial infection. … Filing to @FOXSports1: Cultures taken from Buccaneers G Carl Nicks are once again showing MRSA in his foot. Believed to be a reoccurrence.
Nicks was cleared with the MRSA earlier this season and returned to play last month. This suggests he was infected a second time. Where that second infection occurred is anyone’s guess.
Nicks missed the first two games of the season with a MRSA infection, contracted during training camp, which also felled kicker Lawrence Tynes.
