Statement From Mark DominikOctober 10th, 2013
Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik offered a few words on the recent news that guard Carl Nicks has had a re-occurrence of his MRSA infection in his left foot, the team announced this afternoon.
“This is a re-occurrence for Carl Nicks of the MRSA in the same place, same location and from everything we’ve been told, this does happen. It’s why MRSA is a bacteria that’s hard to treat.
“I would tell you that in talking to the infectious disease specialist that has been treating Carl and working with us and other professionals, he also confirms and believes strong that this is the same infection.”
In other words, there is no reason to believe that, once again this season, the Bucs locker room has become a Petri dish for MRSA. There is no alarm.
