TAMPA, Fla. -- Amanda Tynes wants others to know that her husbands health is still a concern. On Wednesday morning, the wife of Lawrence Tynes tweeted a photo of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker receiving treatment for a MRSA infection on his right foot. On Tuesday, when asked about the progress of Tynes and guard Carl Nicks, who developed a MRSA infection on his left foot, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said both had responded to treatment. "They are responding well Carl I know more about because he's here," Schiano said then. "Carl's healing up. Timeline, I don't know. I can't put a definite date on that. But he is healing, and he's recovering. And with Lawrence, he's not in town, but everything that can be done is being done to make sure that everybody recovers." Tynes was signed July 17 after kicker Connor Barth tore his Achilles tendon before the start of training camp. Tynes, a 10-year veteran, was expected to compete for the starting placekicker role with Derek Dimke, but Tynes developed an ingrown toenail on his kicking foot shortly after his arrival that became infected with MRSA, a staph infection that is unaffected by some antibiotics. He required surgery last week but has not returned to the Bucs facility. Meanwhile, Nicks, who developed a blister on his left foot, has remained out since the MRSA infection was revealed but has received treatment in Tampa. Last Thursday, the Bucs confirmed the MRSA outbreak at their facility. Tynes and Nicks cases were diagnosed when Tampa Bay and the New England Patriots held joint practices in Foxborough, Mass., before the teams preseason game Aug. 16 at Gillette Stadium. The Bucs planned to sanitize their facility twice as a precaution. Youcan follow Andrew Astleford on Twitter @aastlefordor email him at

Anemic preseason shows few positives for Buccaneers

TAMPA, Fla. -- Goodbye, preseason. These Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not miss you.
