Lawrence Tynes’ wife rips Buccaneers for informing him about NFI via email

Lawrence-Tynes-Amanda-TynesThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed kicker Lawrence Tynes on NFI on Saturday, also known as the reserve/non-football-injury list. Tynes has been dealing with a staph infection after a frightening MRSA outbreak in the team’s facility that has supposedly been taken care of. Tynes’ wife, Amanda Tynes, has been unhappy with the way the Bucs have handled the entire situation.

Earlier this week, Amanda tweeted a photo of Lawrence with an IV in his arm and said he is not yet responding well to treatment, despite what the team has said. On Saturday morning, she ripped the team again for informing Tynes of his NFI fate via email.

By placing Tynes on NFI instead of IR, the team can remove him from the roster but avoid admitting that the decision was related to his staph infection. Tynes will still be paid his $840,000 salary.
