TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bay defensive end Da'Quan Bowers has torn his right Achilles tendon during an off-season workout and will undergo surgery.

The second-year pro out of Clemson was a second-round pick in the 2011 draft. He started six of his 16 games as a rookie, finishing with 25 tackles.

Bowers was injured at the team's practice facility on Thursday.

Also, the Bucs announced undrafted college free-agent quarterback Jordan Jefferson was released.
