The 35-year-old has accepted that his illness will keep him out of Sunday's season opener against New York Jets but is upset with how his side have assessed his condition.
The Scot will still be paid by Tampa Bay but his status on the reserve/ non-football injury list will restrict him from any benefits he would receive had he simply been placed on injured reserve. Tynes wants to contest that since he contracted MRSA while under club supervision at a training camp.
"This whole thing is wrong," said Tynes, who moved to Tampa Bay from New York Giants in July. "My biggest emphasis is I don't want this to happen to any current or future player. I'm going to fight this thing as long as I have to, because this team should not be allowed to do this to players.
"If I drop a 45lb plate on my foot while lifting weights in the weight room at the facility, it's IR [injured reserve]. So I just don't understand how my situation is any different. I went to work, I kicked, I practised, I cold-tubbed, I hot-tubbed, I showered for all those days there.
"I come up with MRSA and it's a non-football injury? They are basically trying to exonerate themselves of this and I'm not going to allow it to happen."
