How much time is too much time off for Da'Quan?


"...Da’Quan Bowers watched Monday’s practice from the sideline, and he may do the same thing on Friday night in Kansas City..."

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Price, McCoy, Bowers......all three getting kid-glove treatment.

Hope this doesn't become a habit.....

I guess they are being cautious?? I thought he was good to go.

Hasn't Winslow also traditionally gotten the kid glove treatment on this team?  That's seemed to work out pretty well, so I'm not going to stress out about this.

I'd like to see him play, but I'll trust the coaching staff if they think it is best for him to rest on Friday.

Disappointing. I know it doesn't really mean anything. But I wanted to see him Friday night.

Good.  No reason to push it for a friggin' preseason game.

I like this kid glove treatment or whatever. If i were a lions fan i would be crushed right now. I think no matter what bowers gives you on sunday, its going to be better than what anyother LE on the roster would do. I know everyone would like to see him in game action but what does it prove? He is going to be the bull why risk his health

Morris has established with  his "kid glove" treatment of Winslow in the first two years, that it pays off.

Winslow says he is now, for for the first time in many years, without pain at the beginning of the season, and he is competing hard in many of the practices.

Better to avoid re-injury today, and live to play well another day-----or something like that

Q: What is coach Raheem Morris' plan for the preseason in terms of making sure guys get playing time, but being carefull when it comes to injuries? There have been quiet a few as of late.

Jose, New Rochelle, N.Y.

A: Raheem's plan for the first couple of preseason games is to give the regulars and starters a little more work than they usually get, about 20 plays compared to one or two series. If they can get back up to speed during those first two games, he'll treat the third and fourth preseason games the way he usually does. I'm sure he's concerned about injuries, but he can't let that worry get in the way of making sure the players are ready for the start of the season.

Hide him as much as possible, so he can blow up and surprise RT's in the few weeks of the season how quick and explosive he is.

I don't know if I'm reading too much into the talks about guys being more at risk for injuries with the lack of off season, but look at the lions, they lost thier first and second round picks. I'm willing to take it slow with these guys and let them recover.

Anyone else starting to get the feeling he's not as 100% as we've been led to believe?

Bowers makes the team unless something happens to his knee. Reps are nice but now is the time to who else is going to be in the rotation.

It's not that he isn't 100% but the fact that they have done this in the past with Winslow and it has payed off, I'm all for it. If he doesn't get action this week, he will next week.
