Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Carl Nicks is dealing with a reoccurrence of MRSA, according to a report from FOX Sports.

Nicks originally contracted MRSA over the summer. He has been able to practice and play this season. However, this latest bit of news could set Nicks back this season.

Nicks was acquired via free agency in 2002 after spending his first four seasons with the Saints.
