New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers has been suspended two games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, the league announced Tuesday.

Bowers will be forced to miss upcoming games with Minnesota and Cleveland before being eligible to return for Tampa Bay's home tilt against Atlanta on Nov. 9.

The 2011 second-round pick started a pair of games earlier this season and has recorded six tackles and one sack over five overall contests in 2014.
