    Wow. :eek:

    The Bucs can't catch a break on their young defensive players. He was an injury risk coming into the draft though.

    Wasn't the knock on the guy that it was only a matter of time before he blew out his knee again and that people thought he would have a 2-3 year career? Unfortunately for Bowers, those predictions may be true (well, just the wrong area of the leg).

    Achilles tendons are not safe this offseason.

    Two achilles tendon tears already after what was it, ten or twelve last August?

    Hopefully for NFL players and fans this is not a recurring headline.

    Hey Bucs, we have Ron Brace for you. Please place a 6th rounder here to take Brace!

    Yeah, some teams took Bowers off their boards for precisely that reason.

    A solution for the rest of the offseason?

    I wonder what does that injury feel like. I've had some nagging pain in the ass injuries myself but the thought of an injury like that seems like torture.

    Man, that's really a shame- as if the degenerative knee condition wasn't bad enough, now there's an achilles injury, too? Tough break, for a guy who already dropped from the top of the first round into the second thanks to his knee condition.

    Bowers and Brace aren't even remotely similar players. Not to mention that, for the moment at least, we actually need Brace (and yes, I'm cringing as I type that).

    Knock on wood.

    Usually it's one of our rookies that has a major injury in mini-camp. Let's hope this year we break the trend.

    Will be interesting to see if both he and Suggs come back to play this season as their tweets promise.

    Well, they've had injuries with Price and McCoy as well. So the Brace idea isn't left field.

    Don't be surprised if Bowers' injury puts the Bucs in the market for Andre Carter.

    That's a good thought. However, I wonder if the Bucs would be willing to move on a guy who just got injured when you look at their injury situations.

    If Carter is healed he makes a reasonable stop-gap for a year.

    I want to trade Brace to Denver for Knowshon Moreno.

    Hopefully Da'Quan has invested the 1.6 mil he already made or will make through this season ... that's about all he will get unless he has insurance for more. He can buy and renovate a very decent strip club with that.

    I hope for his speedy return and good health so he can play.

    Wow. If "Icy" means coldhearted then your username is more appropriate than your comment. I don't know much personally about Bowers, but I do know he was the Nation's #1 rated recruit coming about of high school. I am sure he had dreams of a long dominating NFL career but hopefully he will be able to recover and play well enough to keep a job in the league.

    I actually was hoping the Pats would take him with the Ras-I pick at the top of the 2nd round last year…shows how much (how little) I know.

    :agree:
