The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may miss some key defensive players against the Rams. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will miss defensive end Da'Quan Bowers against the St. Louis Rams, while Mark Barron's participation is in doubt as well, Greg Schiano announced today. Bowers has been afterthought on defense after being seen as the likely starter at strongside defensive end during the offseason. Instead, Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and more recently William Gholston have taken over that role, although Bowers has outperformed both of them on a per-snap basis as a pass-rusher. Regardless, given his low amount of snaps his absence should not be a big problem against the Rams. The bigger question becomes whether Bowers will even be a Buccaneer next season.
