Found August 21, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
PLAYERS: Carl Nicks
It was reported during training camp that Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Carl Nicks continued to be hampered by a toe injury, as he arrived to the team’s facility with his foot heavily wrapped. Nicks said it was an ailment that he expected to impact him for the rest of his life, and an infection in the area currently has him listed as out indefinitely, according to head coach Greg Schiano. Nicks’ status is due to a blister on his toes that got infected. The guard is receiving treatment, and Schiano indicated that he’s likely to miss the remainder of the preseason. However, the head coach said it was realistic for Nicks to play in Week 1. If the Bucs want to take a step forward this year, they’ll need Nicks to protect quarterback Josh Freeman and open holes for running back Doug Martin. While Nicks could return for the start of the season, there’s no telling how many games his lingering toe ailments will cause him to miss in 2013.
