This week’s traditional meeting on Wednesday wasn’t about tackling, blocking or anything to do with football. On Monday night, locker rooms, meeting areas and training rooms were sterilized, because tight end Daniel Fells had been hospitalized with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, a dangerous bacterial infection.

Players concerned with their health were asking questions about the method used to clean the team’s training complex, and the additional precautions taken to prevent the spread of the infection. The team’s training followed as usual afterward, after Giants doctors, trainers and health specialists alleviated players’ concerns.

Cornerback Prince Amukamara, had a close experience with the bacteria himself, while he was a freshman at the University of Texas. He described it as “the worst. I was in bed for three or four days. I felt like I was almost paralyzed. It took me about a week to get better.”

According to Tom Coughlin Giants Coach, Fells, is recovering at the moment and could be released on Thursday. The player is sidelined for the season, because of an ankle sprain.
