The Kansas City Chiefs will have the services of WR Dwayne Bowe today vs. the Cleveland Browns, according to ESPN.com.
Barring a pregame setback, coach Andy Reid expects receiver Dwayne Bowe to start Sunday for the Chiefs against the Browns at Arrowhead Stadium despite a slight groin pull suffered Thursday, a source told ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Bowe had been is listed as questionable in Friday’s injury report.
Bowe, who was injured toward the end of practice on Thursday, is second on the Chiefs in catches with 25 and third in yards with 295. He has two touchdowns.
This is good news for the Chiefs’ offense. While KC’s defense has been playing at a championship level, the team’s offense has struggled at times, especially when it comes to getting the ball to Bowe.
The Chiefs will be going up a tough Browns defense that features standout CB, Joe Haden. Haden will likely be assigned to Bowe so the Chiefs will face an excellent test if they plan to try to get Bowe the football. Despite his struggles this season, Bowe is far and away the Chiefs’ best receiver so merely having him on the field should help draw Haden’s attention, which could make a big difference.
KC has two games to get its offense in shape. After Cleveland, the Chiefs travel to Buffalo to take on the Bill before heading into their Bye Week. After that, it is on to Denver to take on Peyton Manning and the Broncos in a game that could have serious playoff seeding implications.
