Posted Oct 12, 2013

In response to the most recent MRSA news, the NFL and the NFLPA have issued a joint statement saying that CB Johnthan Banks has been cleared to play Sunday against the Eagles

Statement from NFL and NFLPA:

“The NFL and NFLPA have worked together in response to the MRSA matter in Tampa Bay.  The jointly retained specialist has met with the team, supervised the inspection of the facilities, conducted medical examinations and agrees with the team medical staff that Mr. Banks does not pose a risk of transmission to other players. The specialist also met with team officials from the Eagles. All players have been advised of the process and we will continue to work together to jointly monitor the situation.”
