MRSA could cancel Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Philadelphia Eagles game

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in disarray, and Bengals players are even  speaking out against embattled head coach Greg Schiano now. But that’s just the beginning of their problems, as they’ve have had a terrible case of MRSA since that start of the team’s training camp, and news only got worse regarding the outbreak today, as a third player has been diagnosed with MRSA:


Now, the game may be canceled entirely:

This is probably the safest thing to do,as this outbreak has cost the Bucs three starters. Pro Bowl guard Carl Nicks’ MRSA infection has returned to his left foot. Place-kicker Lawrence Tynes was also diagnosed with MRSA in August during combined practices with the New England Patriots.

At one point, the infection spread to one of Nicks’ arms, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

    “Bengals players are even speaking out against embattled head coach Greg Schiano now”. You made a mistake, it is BUCCANEERS, not BENGALS.
