Dwayne Bowe Ill, Placed On Non-Football Injury List


Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe sat out practice today and has been placed on the Non-football Injury list by the team.

It started with a report from Ian Rapoport:

Then speculation began that Bowe failed his conditioning test.

From Pro Football Talk:

Dwayne Bowe has been placed on Kansas City’s non-football injury list, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

There’s no word on what the issue is with Bowe. The NFI designation can be for anything from failing a conditioning test to having a nagging injury to suffering from an illness.

It wasn’t just Pro football Talk that mentioned Bowe could have failed his conditioning test. Rumors were flying on Twitter, with some fans likely having flashbacks to when Bowe came to camp overweight back in 2009. At the time, Bowe suffered the wrath of then head coach, Todd Haley.

After practice, however, Andy Reid set the record straight.

According to Reid, Bowe simply has a bad chest cold. Despite that, the veteran WR passed his conditioning test. The team doctors say it is ok for him to be on the field but he is not yet clear to practice.

    Andy Reid better not be lying for Bowe to save face, if he is then Reid should be fired.

      Whoa, simmer down a bit chaci, Fired? Even IF he is “covering” for player i say give that man a raise. We needed more loyalty in our camp so im all for it. I hope you get better Bowe ( whatever the case is)

        Chris Bowe isn’t your typical player, he’s like a special needs kid who rides the short bus and now that Bowe has been paid you can’t allow him to think for one second that he’s an accomplished player or person just because he got paid. He still had a ton of work to do for all Todd Halley got wrong, the way he treated Bowe wasn’t one of them.

      The team is working on leaving the negatives behind, now it is the fans time to do so. I know, they haven’t even played a game yet, but get a grip. It’s time to look at things differently.
