    ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Concerned about a potentially dangerous infection that hit five players the past two seasons, the Washington Redskins hired a company to treat their practice facility with a spray that controls the growth of bacteria and mold.

    New carpeting and a fresh coat of paint were applied to the locker room, weight room, training room and other areas at Redskins Park ahead of last week's spraying, an effort to prevent the spread of MRSA, a form of staph infection that's resistant to many antibiotics.
    "I liked the idea. I liked the science behind it," Redskins trainer Bubba Tyer said Wednesday. "That's just part of the way you prevent this disease from spreading."
