Bowers Out; Barron DiceyDecember 20th, 2013
News out of One Buc Palace today all but killed Da’Quan Bowers’ shot of the double-digit-sacks season that was predicted for him this spring.
Bowers, per Bucs commander Greg Schiano, won’t play Sunday because of his troublesome knee. It’s not a problem related to Bowers’ knee issue he had in college.
Look for emerging rookie Will Gholston to grab more snaps; Bowers was getting about 10 a game when he was healthy.
Mark Barron continues to battle nagging injuries this season and Schiano said he’s questionable for Sunday after a “limited” practice in Tampa today.
Joe hopes Barron recovers for the season finale in New Orleans. Joe really wants to Barron do one of the big things he was drafted to do: lock down on elite tight ends.
