NFL Wife Ticked Off At Team’s Response To Husband’s Injury
Lawrence Tynes, a kicker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, contracted staph infection from one of the team’s workout facilities. His wife, Amanda, is less than thrilled.
But it’s because of how the team handled the situation.
Tampa Bay placed Tynes on the non-football injury list instead of injured reserve Saturday, according to Fox Sports reporter Mike Garafolo. Tynes recently contracted MRSA, a serious staph infection that sidelined the veteran kicker earlier this month. Bucs guard Carl Nicks also contracted the infection, and Tampa Bay acknowledged its facility was treated to prevent an MRSA outbreak.
Tampa Bay is not acknowledging any guilt to prevent any lawsuits by the Tynes family. (Like they need the money anyway?)
The Bucs informed my husband via EMAIL that he will be placed on NFI. Wouldn’t expect anything more from such a classy organization. #blkout
