Unfortunately, it seems as if the Kansas City Chiefs will be without star receiver Dwayne Bowe for this weekend’s clash with the San Diego Chargers.
Fortunately, this game doesn’t mean anything as far as the playoffs are concerned, so Bowe being unavailable won’t hurt the Chiefs in Week 17.
For what it’s worth though—and it’s worth something in the long run—Bowe will be out with a concussion, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.com.
Even if Bowe was able to compete this week, there’s a good chance head coach Andy Reid wouldn’t have played him; or played him much. Reid came out earlier this week and said that he would “mix and match” players for Kansas City’s final game in San Diego, according to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.
“We’ll mix and match,” Reid said of how he’ll blend a combination of starters and reserves in a regular-season finale that will have no bearing on the Chiefs’ No. 5 seed in the upcoming NFL playoffs.
“I’m going to work some guys in,” Reid said. “Most of them have already worked in. … I talked to the team, and I will have it figured out by the end of the week exactly how I’m going to work it.”
