Dwayne Bowe Missed Chiefs' Practice With Groin Strain


For the most part, things have gone swimmingly this season for Kansas City. If  7-0 record isn’t proof of that, than I don’t know what is.

For the most part the Chiefs have been able to stay healthy. Sure, Anthony Fasano, Jamaal Charles and Brandon Flowers have been banged up, and Eric Fisher has dealt with some nagging injuries, but overall, most of Kansas City’s stars have been on the field come game day.

There’s no reason to panic, but according to head coach Andy Reid in today’s press release, one of the Chiefs’ biggest stars had to sit out of practice due to injury:

“Alright, (for) injuries, Dwayne Bowe is the only one to mention,” Reid said. “He did not practice today. He’s got a strain, or a spasm in his groin and we’ll see how it goes.”

Reid said that Bowe had tweaked it at the end of practice on Thursday, and then classified the injury as day to day:

“We’ll see. It’s day to day. We’ll just see how he does,” Reid said. “He was feeling a little bit better today than he did yesterday, which is good. We’ll just see how he is tomorrow and we’ll go from there.”

For the record, athletes get strains and spasms all the time. Being as physically active as they are can be tough on the body, and from time-to-time a muscle will get tweak or pulled.

Usually, it’s nothing a good ice bath, stretch or massage can’t work out after a few days.

From time-to-time it can be a bit more serious though, and from time-to-time, rest can best remedy.

As far as what the situation is for Bowe is, we can only take Reid at his word.

For now, Bowe is day to day.

    Hopefully, all is good we need the show against this Clev. D, although if he doesn’t play maybe we can finally see what Jr. Hemmingway has to offer when needed to step up, I would prefer both of them on the field as I think Jr. just might be a stud.
    Go Chiefs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I have thought so too since watching him in camp last year before he got hurt. Big upside there. Let’s get the man the ball. Hayden can lock down Avery and Junior and Fasano can light it up when Charles takes a breather. I would have thought Bowe would be used to groin spasms by now…..

    Junior will have a monster game! He is exactly the change of pace that we need..Go Chiefs!!!
