According to Mary Kay Cabot, it is feared to be a torn pectoral and they are awaiting results of the MRI.

Meanwhile, Da’Quan Bowers was thought to be an elite talent entering last year’s draft, but teams shied away because of concerns over his knee injury history. He slipped to Tampa Bay in the second round. Today, Adam Schefter announced that Bowers suffered a torn Achilles on the practice field during the offseason workouts.
