Lawrence Tynes is unhappy with being placed on the non-football injury list. Tynes is dealing with MRSA and the Buccaneers may be trying to dodge future legal battles as guard Carl Nicks also came down with the illness during training camp. While Tampa Bay is willing to pay the $840,000 owed to Tynes this season the kicker is unhappy about being placed on the NFI instead of the injured reserve. Being placed on NRI would prevent Tynes from being credited with a year of service. “This whole thing is wrong,” Tynes told FoxSports.com. “My biggest emphasis is I don’t want this to happen to any current or future player. I’m going to fight this thing as long as I have to, because this team should not be allowed to do this to players.” Tynes apparently found out about his status of being placed on NRI via email. Something his wife was less then enthused about after she recently went public against the Buccaneers when the team noted that Tynes was responding well to treatment. “If I drop a 45-pound plate on my foot while lifting weights in the weight room at the facility, it’s IR,” Tynes told FoxSports.com. “So I just don’t understand how my situation is any different. I went to work, I kicked, I practiced, I cold-tubbed, I hot-tubbed, I showered for all those days there. I come up with MRSA, and it’s a non-football injury? They’re basically trying to exonerate themselves of this, and I’m not going to allow it to happen.”
