Dwayne Bowe | WR | Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe is a candidate to be cut this offseason if the team can't work out a reduced contract with him.
Huddle Up: As if the group's zero TD catches wasn't a clear-enough signal, the Chiefs possess one of the league's weakest WR corps, and Bowe's 60 catches for 754 yards is more suited for a No. 2 WR role. Look for K.C. to make a move for a top-level wideout -- either via free-agency or the draft -- after failing to address the need last offseason.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) is dealing with what the team is calling a sprained shoulder, and his availability for Week 17 against the San Diego Chargers is in question. However, head coach Andy Reid is optimistic that Bowe will be able to play in the season finale. Bowe missed all of practice last week while dealing with the flu and still caught six passes for 57 yards in Week 16. "Knowing Dwayne, he doesn't miss much,' Reid said. "I think he'll be OK once it's all said and done here. We've got a little different schedule because of Christmas, and we'll practice tomorrow. It will be a stretch for him to practice to be able to do that tomorrow but as the week goes on, he'll be there."
Huddle Up: Bowe has 57 catches for 724 yards but no TDs this season as the K.C. WR scoreless drought drones on. If you're counting on Bowe in the regular-season finale, monitor the late-week practice reports coming out of K.C.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (flu) did not practice for the third straight day this week Friday, Dec. 19, and is questionable for Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, head coach Andy Reid is confident that Bowe will play against the Steelers. "He's taken in some fluids and trying to maintain keeping those fluids in," Reid said. "We'll just see how he does. He is making improvement, but he did not practice today."
Huddle Up: Sounds like a nasty bug but he figures to be well enough by Sunday. Whether he can break the K.C. WR TD drought, though, remains very doubtful.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe missed his second straight practice due to an illness Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Bowe has missed the team's first two practices of the week but should be good to go come Sunday in Pittsburgh.

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.
