There are no immediate plans to cancel Sunday’s game in Tampa.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Birds 24/7:  ”We are not planning anything that will affect the game.


Translation: Three Tampa Bay Buccaneers have now come down with a bacterial infection called Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. It’s a type of staph infection resistant to many antibiotics. Anyways, it’s contagious, and that’s what has the NFL Players Association worried.
