Tampa Bay Bucs News: Da'Quan Bowers And Arrelious Benn Pass Physicals, Cleared For Camp

Categorize these two news items in the No Big Surprises Here, But Still Good News category. According to Pewter Report and BHSN, Da’Quan Bowers and Arrelious Benn have both been cleared as healthy and can participate in training camp.

Da’Quan Bowers was the Tampa Bay Bucs’ second round draft pick in this year’s NFL Draft, but the only reason he fell so low in the draft was due to health concerns. Bowers had been considered one of the top defensive players in the country, but then suffered a knee injury and required offseason surgery this past year. Despite continued concerns over his knee in the media, Bowers has been claiming for months that his knee is fine:

My knee is fine. It’s way ahead of schedule. it took some time to get my strength back. But I’ve been going through rehab and working out ever since anuary when I had the surgery. It’s finally back to the shape where I can run and cut like I aupposed to. It feels great, and I’m looking forward to being in Training Camp. No setbacks, to why I should be in Training Camp. So everything is a full go from here. (NFL.com interview)

As for wide receiver Arrelious Benn, he spent the offseason rehabbing after tearing his ACL in Week 16 last season. His recovery has been quick to this point, but the Bucs will still likely take it slow with him and all him to recover at his own speed. As of today, though, Benn is claiming he expects to be ready to open the season with the club.
