With defensive end Adrian Clayborn done for the season, Da’Quan Bowers is hoping to help the Buccaneers out once he comes off the PUP list after week six.
“There is still a long ways to go, I’m still about four weeks away,” said Bowers, who was placed on the physically unable to perform list a month ago. “Right now, I’m just taking it day by day. It’s up to coach (Greg) Schiano and (GM) Mark Dominik at the end of the day, so we’ll just see what they decide.”
Bowers says that he’s able to do a lot, but he has to be cautious.
“There are a lot of things I’m able to do physically,” said Bowers. “I’m doing everything I can, but I’m very cautious about what I’m doing.”
Bowers was a highly touted prospect coming out of Clemson. The Bucs could certainly use his talent once he’s cleared to get back on the field.
