Did not see this posted and just found but allegedly nothing to worry about.
Texans running back Arian Foster left practice early today because he wasn’t feeling well.

Apparently there is a bug going around the locker room. Cornerback Jonathan Joseph had it also. Kubiak indicated it wasn’t a big deal.

I had heard that Joseph left game. Also Brahman back from injury.

IIRC Joseph had a touch of a flu. I think this happened last season at one point with guys having nausea.

I bet every AF thread from now until kingdom come has a comment about eating meat.

I think we can trust a pro athlete to take care of himself.

Probably had some bad tofu.

He would be better off if he'd just get back to eating meat.

Shave? I'm thinking laser hair removal...Makes you more streamlined.....:worldpeace:

But I know a lot of guys shave their legs. I used to when I played. When you are getting your ankles taped constantly for practice and for games, it just makes your life easier...Pulling all that tape off hairy legs is no fun...

Plus it makes you skin feel nice and silky...:heart:

As with all things NFL, we can at least say 'Well at least we aren't Browns fans'

http://www.cleveland.com/browns/index.ssf/2008/10/are_staph_infections_plaguing.html
Kellen Winslow's post-game disclosure to The Plain Dealer Sunday that the tight end's mysterious illness was another staph infection stirs another mystery: Why so many?
That makes six key Browns in five years to come down with the ailment. Seven cases total, given that Winslow has contracted the infection twice.

(this was back in 08)

These infections were all wound infections. They were not GI or respiratory infections. Winslow's 2nd mysterious infection occurred following aspiration of a testicular hydrocele, i.e., a needle stuck in the testicular fluid collection to draw the fluid out.

More Kellen Winslow Staph Details Emerge (http://www.waitingfornextyear.com/2009/07/more-kellen-winslow-staph-details-emerge/)


As staph infection rates in hospitals and in the community (those contracted outside of hospital environment) seem to be increasing due to overuse/inappropriate use of antibiotics (including failure to use antibiotics when they should be used prophylactically), so have the occurrences of such wound infections in athletes.


Winslow is latest chapter in Browns' mysterious staph story (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3667100)


This is especially the case when one who has such an infection (knowingly or not) and shares close quarters, shower facilities, training rooms, etc. Obviously, though, air-borne (respiratory) infections and GI (oral ingestion) infections are just as likely to be easily transmitted through the same shared closed quarter environments.

Casey Studdard probably left some of the germs in the locker room via that shirtless Vince Young nightclub event years ago...the germs finally grew and blossomed into a full-on pandemic in the locker room.

I suggest a quarantine of the entire facility, and get Dustin Hoffman in there ASAP.

Yeah, staph infections are nothing to play with.

I had an infection on my staph once and it just about killed me.

Most people would not know that despite the fact that cockroaches carry and spread an unimaginable variety of dangerous bacteria, their brain and nervous system tissue has been found to be able to combat some of the most vicious infections in humans out there such as some of the most feared superbug MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus) and E-coli infections.

The Superbug MRSA Has Met It's Match in the Cockroach

The superbug MRSA, (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a staph bacteria that can cause very serious bacterial infections. MRSA is resistant to antibiotics like methicillin, penicillin, amoxicillin and oxicillin. This is the dangerous Staph bacteria that cause skin infections and can progress to life-threatening blood or bone infections. MRSA, however, may meet a new opponent from a very unlikely source. Researchers have discovered nine different molecules in the tissue of cockroaches that are toxic to both MRSA and the dreaded E-Coli.


Fighting a Bug – With a Bug

Experts from the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Nottingham have found antibiotic properties in the brains of cockroaches and locusts. This discovery could lead to new ways of dealing with resistant bacteria. The tissues of the brain and nervous system of the insects were able to kill more than 90% of MRSA and pathogenic Escherichia coli (E-Coli), without harming human cells. This discovery was presented earlier this month at the Society for General Microbiology meeting in Nottingham.

Wouldn't it Be Just a Little Ironic if the Cockroach Saves the Day?

Here's an insect so problematic that Americans spend an estimated $6 Billion dollars on cockroach control annually! To Simon Lee however, and the team at Nottingham University, the molecules found in the brains of cockroaches and locust may present an opportunity to fight one of the most dangerous pathogens on the planet. He considers the living conditions of the cockroach one reason why they have developed their own defense against harmful bacteria. In a recent BBC interview he explains: "They must have some sort of defense against micro organisms. We think their nervous system needs to be continuously protected because if the nervous system goes down the insect dies."

Of course, EATING a whole household cockroach would lend itself much more likely to developing a serious infection than to treating one.link (http://questional.com/blog/93-cockroaches-key-to-mrsa-treatment/):tiphat:

Maybe they need to teach their locker room cleaning staff to use BLEACH! I don't even want to think about what that locker room smells like, or looks like, after practice or after a game!! BARF!! I could go into detail, but, I'll leave that to you GUYS imagination!:thinking: I'm sure most of you and have there, done that!!:)

I've seen folks eat roaches before but usually because of flashing lights in mirror or a loud knock on the door.
