6. OLB Tyus Bowser left Injured Reserve this week. Is his return getting closer?
Veteran outside linebacker Tyus Bowser, who has been recovering from a knee injury for months on end, practiced last week and on Wednesday but remained on Injured Reserve through Sunday so he couldn't appear in the Week 4 clash at Cleveland.
Speaking on the Glenn Clark Radio show (h/t Baltimore Beatdown), Bowser expressed confidence in his progress and rehab process, stating, "I’ve been on the field, moving, feeling a lot more confident. Hopefully this week I can get out on the field at some point with the team."
Bowser has suffered many injuries in the last couple of years. He tore his Achilles in 2021, rehabbed for a year, came back to play just nine games in 2022, and earlier this summer he skipped the mandatory minicamp and later started training camp on the PUP list.
He arrived at The Castle at the end of July with a heavy wrap on his right knee and leaping, per Baltimore Beatdown, and we had not heard a lot about him until we learned about his practicing ahead of Week 4.
With just a few days between now and the game against the Steelers, but a few practices already under his belt, it's at least fairly reasonable to expect Bowser get activated for Sunday and appear in the divisional matchup even on a pitch count to bolster an edge rushing unit that has been forced to rely on veterans free agents such as Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy.
