Injured Bucs defensive end Da'Quan Bowers working his way back
Injured defensive end Da'Quan Bowers was a spectator during today's practice at One Buc Place, watching what he's missing while rehabbing his ruptured Achilles tendon.
Bowers, who was injured during an offseason workout session in May, said he currently is limited to jogging, but he hasn't given up on the notion that he could return before the season ends.
In fact, Bowers said he's been encouraged by his progress and has had to be reminded by the Tampa Bay training staff to use caution and not push himself too hard too soon.
"The big thing right now," he said, "is not to rush it. They've told me I might feel ready, but just don't rush it."
