Bob Costas might not be back on the air again for NBC's Olympic Games coverage.

As, FTVLive has been telling you, Costas has been battling a nasty eye infection that started in one eye and spread to both.

NBC's Olympic EP Jim Bell sent out this email, indicating that Costas might be done with his on air duties at the games.
