TAMPA, Fla. — A third Tampa Bay Buccaneers player has been diagnosed with an MRSA infection, the team said Friday.

The team did not reveal the player’s identity.

Kicker Lawrence Tynes and guard Carl Nicks previously were diagnosed with MRSA, which is resistant to some antibiotics. Nicks came back and played in two games before he was diagnosed with a recurrence Thursday.

“Our office, the NFLPA, and appropriate medical specialists are working with the Buccaneers’ medical staff to aggressively address the matter,” the league said in a statement from spokesman Greg Aiello.
