This really is a nightmare for that organization to have to deal with. If it's still in the team facilities, good luck ever completely sanitizing it. MRSA is most commonly found in hospitals, which are some of the most heavily cleaned places around. Even if this issue is "resolved", I wouldn't be surprised in the least if this is headline we continue to read in the future.

A few updates:

Quote:
If multiple Bucs players have MRSA.. is it even safe to play this game in Tampa this weekend? Has everyone been tested?
Quote:
Per the CDC website.. MRSA infection can be increased by " skin to skin contact". Um..that's football.
Quote:
Key word from NFPLA is "could". waiting to hear full results.. will update both sides with latest info..should have update on NFL LIVE

Quote:
NFLPA tells @wingoz that, depending on what MRSA containment report says, the NFLPA could advise Bucs-Eagles not to play this weekend.
Quote:
Bucs are holding a team meeting this afternoon to discuss the entire MRSA issue and approach.

All of our focus at this time is to work with the players, the club and the NFL to best contain, eliminate and treat MRSA.

This is a nightmare for the NFL. Play and risk continuing the outbreak? Let's be clear others could have been infected in the last 5 days. Won't know that until everyone is tested. Or postpone the game and have nowhere to place a make up date? Different bye weeks , no fair way of playing on a Thursday/Sunday back to back. Forcing a Sunday/Weds/Sunday game would be just as detrimental. They almost have to play barring a MRSA shut down by the CDC.

That's the thing about MRSA, it never truly goes away. I got it from wrestling someone with it who had an open sore in high school, 4 years later and I still have it come back from time to time. Very likely all three guys will be lifetime carriers of it, which puts them at risk to become reinfected in the future.

To add to this, it is likely that they will be able to pass this on for a very long time.

Also will depend on the particular strain of MRSA in this situation.

This is somewhat false. I have had MRSA twice, however, I am not a carrier of MRSA. If you are a carrier, you are correct, it never goes away. However, if you have it and get put on meds, and it's gone, it is not in your body.

It's scary stuff no doubt though.

Right, I should have been more clear, have to be considered a carrier. My doctor did tell me that it's very likely you'll become a carrier if you are ever infected though. Colonies thrive both on the skin and near the nasal region.

Yep, very true. Thankfully I'm not one, but it's pretty scary stuff. I'm super paranoid about it at the gym now that's for sure.

We're also now dealing with really terrible strains of MRSA that are resistant to the last remaining antibiotic that was effective against it.

So this is just going to get worse until a new bactericidal treatment is developed. And there are few in the works.

Sounds like they should probably be handing out Mupirocin...and Nicks needs a good zap of Vanc.

Are they nearing the point where they would just have to finish out the rest of the season and home game in another stadium with clean facilities?
