Another member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has come down with an MRSA staph infection.

Johnthan Banks is the third member of the Buccaneers to be diagnosed with a staph infection this year.


Kicker Lawrence Tynes and guard Carl Nicks were the first two members of the Buccaneers to be diagnosed. Tynes has already been ruled out for the season while nicks was able to return prior to Week 3 and played the last two weeks before having a recurrence earlier this week.

Banks had been the Buccaneers starting corner opposite of Darrelle Revis. Thus far this season Banks had an interception and picked up ten tackles.
