From NFL.com:

"My knee is great," Bowers told WDAE-AM on Saturday. "It’s back to where I needed it to be. You know, It’s back to playing shape. You know, I’ve been rehabbing and working out all throughout the whole summer, even through the lockout. The knee is fine. I’m running, cutting, jumping. Everything’s a full go."

Asked whether the knee injury was degenerative, as some reports have suggested, Bowers said, "That’s not the case," adding that renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews "has seen much worse knees than mine that went on to have great careers in the NFL."

Bowers has skipped two player-only workouts organized by Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman -- and he failed to attend June's NFLPA-run rookie symposium -- but the former Clemson defensive terror says he skipped out to prepare his body for the season ahead.

Bowers also predicted great things for his new team.


"Get (the) popcorn ready," he said. "It's gonna be a long ride to the Super Bowl."
