Carl Nicks' tenure in Tampa Bay has gotten off to an unforeseen start.
He's dealt with a toe injury and a MRSA infection, both of which caused him to miss 14 games a season ago. He's still dealing with those issues and told reporters on Tuesday that he will be unable to participate in Tampa Bay's minicamp.
"I don't know about a percentage," Nicks said, via ESPN.com. "I'm not a percentage guy. I've never been that guy. But obviously I'm not ready to practice right now. But I feel comfortable saying I'll be back for training camp."
In 2012, Nicks signed a five-year deal worth $47.5 million. He's only been able to appear in nine games over the past two seasons.
