Knee Officially Ends Da’Quan Bowers’ SeasonDecember 26th, 2013
There’s no truth to the rumor Da’Quan Bowers recently injured his knee fervently praying for the double-digit sack season Greg Schiano expected of him, a March decree that was no Nostradamus moment.
Today, Bowers, who has one sack in 2013, was placed on injured reserve for the season finale.
The injury is not related to Bowers’ previous knee issues in college.
Yes, Joe expects Bowers to return if Schiano returns next season.
Bowers, still just 23 years old, will enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2014. He doesn’t make much money as a second-round pick, and he does have raw talent and coaches seem to like his attitude.
Bowers seems like a great guy, and he’ll surely dive into his music once players wave good-bye for the offseason next week.
A gospel singer and guitarist, here’s one of Joe’s favorites from the Bowers collection, “Sail On Superstar,” a song dedicated to his late father.
