    Bower (neck) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

  • Patriots' Tashawn Bower: Shakes off ailment

    Bower (illness) was absent from the Patriots' injury report Thursday.

    Bower was forced to miss last week's win over the Cardinals due to the ailment, but he appears on track for a return to the field. Bower has played sparingly in the four games he's been active with the Patriots this season, so he'll likely assume his usual reserve defensive end role for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    Bower (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

  • Tashawn Bower: Works out for Colts

    Bower (Achilles) tried out for the Colts on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Bower was waived off the reserve/non-football injury list by the Vikings on Oct. 15 while dealing with an Achilles issue. The 24-year-old's audition in Indianapolis is indicative that he's back to full health.

  • Tashawn Bower: Let go by Minnesota

    Bower (Achilles) was waived off the reserve/non-football injury list by the Vikings on Tuesday.

  • Vikings' Tashawn Bower: Lands on reserve/NFI list

    The Vikings placed Bower (Achilles) on the reserve/non-football injury list to start the season, per the league's official transactions report.

  • Vikings' Tashawn Bower: Not at practice Tuesday

    Bower (foot) was unable to participate at Tuesday's minicamp, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

    Bower has been recovering from foot and ankle injuries that forced him to miss 11 games last season. This news certainly puts a damper on his chance to return soon, but Bower was able to shed his walking boot May 22. There's currently no timetable for his return to the field for training camp and beyond.

  • Vikings' Tashawn Bower: Sheds walking boot

    Bower (foot) has shed his walking boot but isn't participating in OTAs, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Bower presumably remains on the mend from an unspecified ankle/lower-body injury he suffered sometime during the 2018 campaign. The sooner he can return to the field, the better his odds will be of securing a roster spot ahead of Week 1.

  • Vikings' Tashawn Bower: Recovering from foot/ankle injury

    Bower (foot/ankle) has a walking boot over his left foot at the beginning of the Vikings' offseason program, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Between an ankle injury and a few healthy scratches, Bower was limited to five games in 2018, his second professional season. The walking boot suggests he had surgery somewhere along the line, potentially impacting his bid to stay on the roster for another year. Bower still has plenty of time to make a full recovery before the start of training camp in late July.

  • Vikings' Tashawn Bower: Set for another absence

    Bower (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Bower will miss a second straight contest with the ankle injury that kept him sidelined during the Vikings' Week 5 victory over the Eagles. The Vikings will continue to be thin at defensive end with Everson Griffen (personal) away from the team, leaving Danielle Hunter and Stephen Weatherly as their primary pass rushers.

  • Vikings' Tashawn Bower: Will not suit up Sunday

    Bower (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Eagles.

    Bower failed to practice Thursday and Friday after logging a limited session Wednesday. He is a depth option on defense for Minnesota, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact Sunday.
