Buccaneers defensive end Da’Quan Bowers made it through pregame warmups unscathed and is now active and ready to go for tonight’s game against the Vikings.
Bowers, who was brought up to the 53-man roster from the physically unable to perform list this afternoon, is ready to make his 2012 debut at Minnesota. In 2011 Bowers was a second-round draft pick who played in all 16 games and started six.
The Buccaneers’ inactives are CB Myron Lewis, RB Michael Smith, DB Keith Tandy, LB Najee Goode, G Cody Wallace, WR Chris Owusu and TE Danny Noble.
The Vikings’ inactives are QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, WR Jarius Wright, CB Brandon Burton, S Mistral Raymond, LB Audie Cole, OL Mark Asper and TE John Carlson.
