Reports are surfacing from all over the place that there is a case of MRSA, commonly known as Staph infection, going around the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The NFL's Ian Rapoport reports that in addition to kicker Lawrence Tynes, guard Carl Nicks was diagnosed with MRSA on Thursday and cornerback Jonathan Banks was diagnosed on Friday.
Here's why you should care: the Eagles play the Buccaneers on Sunday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL Players' Association may recommend not playing the game on Sunday depending the outcome of a report on the MRSA containment of Raymond James Stadium.
This is serious stuff. Aside from wrestling, football is one of the easiest sports in which to spread MRSA. Hopefully everything is clean and good to go.
