Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps) isn't expected to be limited in any way in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos in his first game of the season after serving a one-game suspension, according to head coach Andy Reid. "He had a great training camp and preseason," Reid said. "I haven't seen anything (like that). I liked what I saw there. He came back in great shape. We expect him to have a real good year."
Huddle Up: The Chiefs will need a good year from Bowe, who averaged a career-low 11.8 yards per catch on 57 receptions last season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will return to the 53-man roster from Reserve/Suspension this week, the team announced Tuesday, Sept. 9. Bowe served a one-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs need any boost they can get after a lackluster 26-10 Week 1 loss to the visiting Titans, and getting their top WR back will be a boost for QB Alex Smith, who struggled through perhaps his worst outing (19-of-35, 202 yards, 1 TD, 3 picks) in K.C. career Sunday. With Bowe out, de facto No. 1 Donnie Avery garnered 13 of Smith's 33 targets and 81 percent of the WR targets (13 of 16), finishing with a team-high 7 passes for 84 yards.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be suspended for one game for substance abuse, and he'll miss the season opener against the Tennessee Titans, according to a team source.
Huddle Up: A few days ago, Bowe seemed a strong bet to improve on his No. 44 fantasy WR rank from last season, but the revelation about his finger issues and now the 1-game suspension could be the start of Bowe spiraling the other way.

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe's (finger) finger is 'shot', according to head coach Andy Reid. 'It's been thrown out of place about 15 times, and he's not catching the ball,' Reid said. 'But he's getting his work done. You can practice with that type of thing.'
Huddle Up: Doesn't sound like Reid is concerned, but a receiver with a bum finger that hinders his ability to catch the football is definitely cause for fantasy owners to be concerned. And it's not as if fantasy owners don't have concerns about Bowe already.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne 's in the best shape he's been in. I know from last year, this is completely different.'
Huddle Up: Bowe's fantasy owners are hoping his stats shape up as well as the WR is coming off back-to-back sub-100-point fantasy seasons following his top-20 campaign in 2011.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe looked great during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Bowe hit 4-year lows in catches (57) and yards (673) last season, but K.C. doesn't seem at all worried, doing nothing to address the position in the offseason. In short, the Chiefs and certain keeper-league owners are counting on Bowe's numbers to start trending in the opposite direction -- in a hurry.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (concussion) has been cleared to practice Tuesday, Dec. 31, but has not been cleared to play.
Huddle Up: It's a step, and it's early enough in the process that there is plenty of time for Bowe to get clearance to play this weekend.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said WR Dwayne Bowe (concussion) is making progress and is scheduled to participate in practice Tuesday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Bowe back at practice would be a big step towards his returning to action in the first round of the playoffs, though for the most part he's been a fantasy disappointment this season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the San Diego Chargers. WR Junior Hemingway is Bowe's backup, but WR A.J. Jenkins could also see some targets as a result of Bowe's absence.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs are resting their starters this week against San Diego because they're locked into their playoff spot. Even if Bowe was healthy, he wouldn't have played on Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe likely will not play Week 17 because of his concussion.
Huddle Up: With K.C. already locked in to the AFC's No. 5 seed and Andy Reid talking about resting players, don't plan on seeing Bowe on Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said WR Dwayne Bowe will start in the team's Week 11 game even though he was arrested earlier in the week.
Huddle Up: It seems his arrest might not affect him for a while, depending on if/when his case goes to trial. You shouldn't start him with confidence, but he has a decent matchup this week.

ESPN.com's Ed Werder doesn't believe Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be disciplined for his marijuana arrest until the case is adjudicated, meaning it isn't likely to affect his availability for Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The wheels of justice turn slowly, so the Chiefs should have Bowe at their disposal this weekend. It's a favorable matchup on paper, but Bowe has treated those "favorable matchup on paper" situations like an unhousebroken puppy thus far this season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe was arrested Sunday, Nov. 10, and was charged with speeding and possession of marijuana. Bowe was clocked moving at 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. He has posted bond and has a court date set for Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Not sure how long it will take the wheels of justice to spin in the NFL, but you can bet there's a visit with Roger Goodell in Bowe's future. He hasn't been much of a fantasy factor this season anyway, so if he is suspended it won't be a significant loss.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) will be able to play Week 8 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Bowe has a tough match-up drawing Cleveland corner Joe Haden this week. Given that Bowe is hurting, been a disappointment this year and has to deal with Haden, this wouldn't be a bad week to leave him on your bench if you have other options to choose from.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe has lacked explosion during the early going, and he has struggled to beat man coverage, giving the team a big problem.
Huddle Up: We can't claim to have authored "Football For Dummies," but when a WR is struggling against coverage, he's typically not having the best of seasons. Bowe's fantasy owners can vouch for that as their man doesn't have a game so far with more than 4 catches or 58 yards despite K.C.'s 5-0 start. Maybe a shaky Raider secondary will prove to be the antidote Sunday.
