“Being that it’s a possibility for me to play this year – it hits home with me,” Bowers said. “A lot of people said that when the injury happened that I was definitely done for the year. It was not a good situation that it happened, but it couldn’t have happened at a better time. It gave me enough time to rehab and get on the right path to make a comeback this year. If it had happened in training camp, I would have been lost for the whole year.
“It taught me a valuable lesson. I think I have become more studious of the game by watching more game film and watching practice. It’s helped the mental aspect of my game because I’m not able to do a lot. Being in meetings and taking a whole other shot at the playbook has been beneficial to me. Basically, I go to meetings with the team, watch practice and I try to help the players make corrections. I watch A.C. (Adrian Clayborn), I watch Gerald [McCoy], I watch everybody in practice and try to help them with the little things. I break down film with the coaches and do whatever I can help the D-line when it comes to game day.”
