Nicks Has Surgery, Return Expected In NovemberOctober 16th, 2013
Bad news/good news at One Buc Palace today. All-Pro guard Carl Nicks, whose bum toe/MRSA-infected foot, had surgery in the last 24 hours after seeking an out-of-town medical opinion on the MRSA re-infection that kept him out of Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
However, there is good news, a well placed Bucs source told Joe. Nicks’ condition isn’t that bad and he’s expected to return to action next month.
As Joe wrote earlier, the Bucs practiced with Jeremy Zuttah and left guard for a stretch of practice today, with Ted Larsen at center and Gabe Carimi at guard. Greg Schiano said Davin Joseph is day-to-day after taking a knock on his good knee against the Eagles.
