    Spoke to Kellen Winslow yesterday on MRSA. His eyes went wide when I told him rumor was the Bucs are dealing with it. He had it in Cleveland
    And a scalpel. Ya follow? RT @pulsedhalo: That infection is no joke. You need old school anti-biotics to get rid of it.

    Rumors were rampant the last couple days on potential staph infections with the Bucs. As @alexmarvez said, Nicks/Tynes had MRSA infections.
    Bucs coach Greg Schiano told his players about the MRSA outbreak on Monday, after the facility was taken care of.
    More details on the MRSA/Bucs situation: Tynes and Nicks were diagnosed when the club was in New England. Facility santized over the weekend

    Teams have had to sterilize their locker rooms, alter equipment, practice field, even laundry/towel protocols in past to prevent its spread

    Yikes. Got that once in my leg and it was extremely painful to try to stand or walk.

    Time to stock up on Bactrim.

    I got that on my back from a weightroom on a college campus. Got to the point I couldn't even sleep on my back. Ruined a lot of good shirts as well.

    Stuff is no joke.
