The cases were diagnosed last week while the Bucs were in New England holding joint practices with the Patriots before a preseason game. The entire roster was informed of the infections Monday.
Analysis: General manager Mark Dominik confirms Thursday that guard Nicks has an infected blister on the side of his left foot and kicker Tynes has an infected toe on his right foot. The team hired a company to sanitize One Buc Place, the team's training facility, last week. A second cleaning has been scheduled. The Bucs said they know where Nicks and Tynes, who did not travel to New England, were exposed to MRSA, a staph infection that's resistant to some antibiotics.
