The photograph was tweeted on Wednesday by Tynes' wife, Amanda, who joined the social medium only a day earlier. Disputing Bucs coach Greg Schiano's comments that Tynes, the 35-year-old kicker (as well as guard Carl Nicks) are "responding well," to treatment for a MRSA infection, Amanda said her husband is going through a "horrible time," and anyone who believes otherwise is mistaken. "I hear my husband is responding 'well,' to treatment," the tweet reads. "LOL! He's NOT responding at all yet. This is our #bucslife." Later, she tweeted, "Lawrence finally has the right people in his corner." Tynes returned to his home on Friday in Kansas City, Mo., to receive additional treatment for MRSA, an aggressive staph infection resistant to most antibiotics. Tynes and Nicks likely contracted the infection at One Buc Place, GM Mark Dominik said Aug. 22. The Bucs declined comment Wednesday, telling media to refer to Schiano's previous comments. Schiano responded Sunday to a question about the MRSA outbreak by saying he knew less about Tynes' condition because the kicker no longer was in Tampa Bay. "They are responding well," Schiano said Sunday. "Carl I know about more because he is here. Carl's healing up. Timeline, I don't know. And with Lawrence, he's not in town. But everything that can be done is being done to make sure everybody recovers." Brandon Jacobs, a teammate of Tynes' with the Giants, tweeted Monday the Tynes had received a PICC line — peripherally inserted central catheter. A PICC line can remain in place for weeks or months and enables a patient to receive IV medications at home. "Praying for my boy Lawrence Tynes. Getting a PICC line run to his heart to fight MRSA," Jacobs tweeted. Tynes originally was diagnosed with an ingrown toenail on his right foot. But he sought a second opinion. Doctors at the New York Hospital for Special Surgery diagnosed the MRSA and performed surgery. The Bucs have several roster options while he recovers, but one seems most likely: placing him on the nonfootball injury list. That would mean Tynes is not paid and doesn't count against the salary cap or roster limit. When Tynes recovers, the Bucs can activate or release him. Patriots disinfect: The Pat­riots recently treated the visiting locker room at Gillette Stadium and the equipment the Bucs used at their training facility to erase any potential existence of MRSA, espn.com reported. The Patriots hosted the Bucs for joint practices Aug. 13-15 and a preseason game Aug. 16. None of New England's players have encountered the bacteria.
