MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took defensive end Da’Quan Bowers off the physically unable to perform list on Thursday and put him on the active roster for their game at Minnesota.

Bowers has been out since May because of a torn right Achilles tendon. He began practicing last week. The second-round draft pick from Clemson, in his second season in the NFL, could help bolster one of the league’s weakest pass rushes. To make room for Bowers, the Buccaneers released cornerback LeQuan Lewis.

Cornerback Myron Lewis, running back Michael Smith, safety Keith Tandy, linebacker Najee Goode, center Cody Wallace, wide receiver Chris Owusu and tight end Danny Noble were inactive for the Buccaneers. Cornerback Brandon McDonald, questionable for the game because of an ankle injury, suited up.

Tight end John Carlson was out for Minnesota because of concussion-like symptoms, as expected. The Vikings also put safety Mistral Raymond on the inactive list for the fifth straight game because of a right ankle injury. Jamarca Sanford started in his place again.

Joining Carlson and Raymond in street clothes on Thursday night were quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, wide receiver Jairus Wright, cornerback Brandon Burton, linebacker Audie Cole and offensive lineman Mark Asper. Wright, a fourth-round draft pick from Arkansas, hasn’t played yet.
