Any word on how he recovery is going? And can we expect him back this year?

Sorry I thought this was a forum we could ask questions related to the Bucs.

Yes, I thought so too. That's how things have been done in the past. Question

@NFLSTROUD: Schiano says Da'Quan Bowers is improving and says he will come back this season, but they're not going to rush him.

They need to let him miss the season. Achillies injuries are something you don't mess around with especially with dlineman/pass rushers. See Shawn Merriman. He's never been the same since he tore his Achilles.

Or since he did steroids. Correlation =/= causation.

Well technically they mis-diagnosed his injury. He didn't tear his Achilles, he tore his heel bone off his leg which was very close to the Achilles. There's no way Bowers is pondering the thought of playing if he tore his Achilles as first reported.

So did Cushing and he was still a beast after he got caught.

Quote:
The ex-Clemson star, whose stock slipped from being a first-rounder to being a second-rounder because of concerns about his knee last draft, tore his Achilles in May. The Bucs put him on the Physically Unable to Perform list, just on the possibility that he could return. And, Im told, rehab is going extremely well. So well, in fact, that the Bucs are expecting hell be back in 2012.

Instead of tearing the Achilles and having it completely explode off the bone like often happens, Im told Bowers simply tore off the heel bone. That has quickened rehab dramatically. Bowers is working like crazy to return, and he told reporters that hell do what the team asks in terms of being activated.

Its up to coach (Greg) Schiano and (GM) Mark Dominik at the end of the day, Bowers told reporters, including the Tampa Bay Times. Well see what they decide, and if they think they can put me in. If they feel like they want to save me, Im fine with that either way.

Da'Quan Bowers will re-join the #Bucs in practice on Wednesday at least in limited capacity. This does not mean he's being activated.

If Bowers can give us anything this season it would be huge.

If his injury isn't as bad as first reported then I wouldn't mind seeing him this year. But only if he's absolutely 100% healthy.
