TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The NFL has suspended Tampa Bay defensive end Da’Quan Bowers for two games without pay for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The fourth-year pro will join suspended Buccaneers fullback Jorvorskie Lane in sitting out Sunday’s home game against Minnesota, as well as a Nov. 2 road game at Cleveland. Lane’s two-game ban for violating the same policy was announced last week, when Tampa Bay had a bye.

Bowers and Lane will be eligible to return to the active roster on Nov. 3.

A second-round draft pick in 2011, Bowers has started just 10 games as a pro. He has one sack in five games after being slowed by injuries the past two seasons.
