“I Have Four Weeks To Go,” Says Da’Quan BowersSeptember 24th, 2012
As the Buccaneers and their emerging defensive line mourn the apparent season-ending knee injury to Adrian Clayborn, one must wonder how DaQuan Bowers’ recovery from an Achilles tear is going.
Thankfully, Bowers was in the locker room today and provided an update.
Bowers said he feels good, that his greatest challenges are mental and not physical, and he has “four weeks to go” and would be ready to play then if coaches give him the go-ahead.
Joe admires Bowers’ spirit and determination, but Joe doesn’t see the value in rushing back Bowers even if he’s cleared by doctors to get off the physically unable to perform list and start practicing. Maybe it would make sense if the Bucs were in some sort of legitimate playoff chase. Maybe.
Let Bowers really heal fully and come back hungry and healthy next season.
