Report: Falcons disinfected locker room after Buccaneers left

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Some people might think Greg Schiano and the way he coaches his team to attack when the opposing team is kneeling out the game is a dirty move. Other people, though, think the Buccaneers are, quite literally, dirty.

Thus, we bring you the report from the Fox affiliate in Tampa Bay that, after the Falcons knocked off the Buccaneers 31-23 on Sunday, workers in hazmat suits entered the visitor's locker room and disinfected the space because they were worried about the possible spread of MRSA.

As you can see below:

As you should know, there have been three confirmed cases of MRSA among Buccaneers players this year, including kicker Lawrence Tynes, guard Carl Nicks and rookie cornerback Johnthan Banks. The Buccaneers have said that Tynes and Nicks -- who had surgery this week to get rid of his staph infection -- did not have the same strain of MRSA.

As USA Today notes, the Buccaneers have had their facilities cleaned twice to try to rid themselves of the potentially-deadly bacteria. And now, so have the Falcons.
