Are teams scared of Bowers' knee?

Bowers Posted by Josh Katzowitz

On Wednesday, Pro Football Weekly’s Nolan Nawrocki – you know him better as the guy who gave Cam Newton a tough evaluation – said today that some teams were being scared off by the possibility that former Clemson DE Da’Quan Bowers might need microfracture surgery on his knee, a procedure that could cost him a year as he recovers.

But the Cleveland Plain Dealer, talking to a source close to Bowers, disputes that report, writing that no doctor has told Bowers he would need that kind of surgery (in which doctors drill two small holes in his knee so scar tissue will grow) in the future and that at least one NFL team doctor told him his knee looks great.

Bowers had surgery in January to repair a torn meniscus, and since then, he declared he was 100 percent healthy at the NFL combine (though he didn’t work out) and then missed Clemson’s pro day before giving a so-so workout at his own personal pro day.

Nawrocki said two teams failed Bowers during their physicals at the Combine, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Bowers is doomed.

While it’s hard to imagine Bowers falling to late into the first round of the draft, though Nawrocki raised that possibility, there’s no telling how much his knee is hurting him (physically and in the NFL’s mindset).
