Banks_2013 [1]Multiple reports have identified cornerback Johnthan Banks as the third Buccaneers player to contract MRSA.

But in an unexpected twist, it might not keep him off the field.

According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, Banks may still play Sunday against the Eagles.

While it’s possible that it’s a perfectly responsible medical decision, it’s still the kind of thing that will make opponents and teammates alike wary of sharing a space with him, until more is known about the particulars of his condition.
