The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been dealing with a serious problem at their training facilities since at least Aug. 22 and that problem is MRSA.

If you're unfamiliar with MRSA, here's the description of it from the Mayo Clinic: MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) “is caused by a strain of staph bacteria that's become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections.”

The two players most affected by the MRSA outbreak at One Buc Place have been guard Carl Nicks and kicker Lawrence Tynes.

On Tuesday, five days after the outbreak was discovered, coach Greg Schiano was asked about the health of Tynes and Nicks. "They're responding well [to treatment]," Schiano said, via ESPN.com.

However, not everyone agrees with that assessment and one of the people who happens to disagree is Amanda Tynes -- Lawrence Tynes' wife.

Amanda took to Twitter to let the world know that he husband isn't 'responding well' -- he's actually not responding at all so far.

That definitely looks like the face of someone who's not responding to treatment so far.

Amanda Tynes tweeted for the first time ever Tuesday, the same day Schiano's comments were made, so it appears she took to Twitter for the sole purpose of rebuking Schiano. Although, she did send a follow-up tweet thanking well-wishers.

The timetable for Tynes' return is still up in the air.
