Buccaneers really could've done without the news of an MRSA outbreak after losing its starting quarterback, losing all of its games, and Darrelle Revis already having issues with head coach Greg Schiano. The former is much more serious though because it can't be treated by antibiotics and had a chance of canceling today's Baccaneers/Eagles game to reduce risks of spreading an infection that already took three players.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said that game is still on.aftert finding out other players aren't at risk for infection and the infection didn't originate in the Buccaneers' facitilites. He released a statement via Twitter:


That's good knews. Hopefully, cornerback Johnthan Banks, kicker Lawrence Tynes, and guard Carl Nicks make full recoveries.
