Visiting locker room in Atlanta cleaned for MRSA after Bucs leave

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Once Tampa Bay Buccaneers players left the Georgia Dome locker room Sunday night, a hazardous materials crew went in to clean the facility to make sure no traces of MRSA were left behind.

This is in light of the Bucs' three confirmed MRSA cases.

Rookie cornerback Johnthan Banks was cleared to play in last week's game after it was confirmed he had MRSA.

Guard Carl Nicks also was infected with MRSA earlier in the season, but he was cleared to play in week 3.

Then it was confirmed his MRSA symptoms reappeared.

Bucs kicker Lawrence Tynes is the third player with MRSA. He has filed an injury grievance report with the team.
