Zack Bowman will start at cornerback Sunday ahead of Nate Vasher. The 6-foot-1, 193-pound Bowman has a size advantage on the 5-foot-10, 187-pound Vasher, and he was playing better in training camp before a hamstring injury sidelined him for three weeks and kept him out of all but the final preseason game. Vasher started the season opener but Bowman played in a rotation with him and Tillman in the first half. “I thought he played well in the limited time he had the other day,” coach Lovie Smith said of Bowman. “We’ve been bringing him back from an injury. He's done a lot of good things when he's had an opportunity to play.”
