Buccaneers' Nicks, Williams inactive

Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Carl Nicks and wide receiver Mike Williams are inactive for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Nicks had a recurrence of an MRSA staph infection in his left foot this week. The ailment forced him to miss the first two games of the season, but he played in the next two games.

Williams was limited in practice all week with a hamstring injury. He was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.

This week, rookie cornerback Johnthan Banks became the third Buccaneer this season to be diagnosed with MRSA. He is active for Sunday's game.

Defensive ends Trevor Scott and William Gholston and cornerbacks Michael Adams and Rashaan Melvin are inactive.
