Dwayne Bowe WR KC 5 Days

Bowe had six catches for 64 yards in Sunday's 34-7 win over the Rams.

By this point in the season, you know what you're going to get with Bowe: a handful of catches, somewhere around 50-80 receiving yards and no touchdowns. It's been the same story every Sunday, though perhaps a matchup with the bumbling Jets next week will lead to his first touchdown.

Bowe had five catches on seven targets for 84 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win at San Diego.

Bowe had an ugly drop at one point, but also came up with a huge 17-yard catch on Kansas City's game-winning drive. Other than a five-catch, 81-yard performance against New England in Week 4, Bowe had been very quiet this season though. He still hasn't scored a touchdown, and has caught more than three passes in a game just twice this year. With that said, he's still Kansas City's top option at wide receiver. He'll take on St. Louis at home in Week 8.

Bowe had three receptions on six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's loss at San Francisco.

Coming off his most productive game of the season against New England on Monday Night Football, Bowe wasn't much of a factor Sunday. He's getting almost exactly six targets per game, although he's only been thrown to a total of two times in the red zone. When one considers that Bowe is getting less looks from close range, making fewer big plays (hasn't had a catch of 40 yards or more since Dec. 9, 2012), and the emergence of tight end Travis Kelce, who caught another touchdown Sunday, it's hard to get super excited about Bowe's 2014 outlook. He won't play next Sunday, as Kansas City will have its bye week.

Bowe caught five passes for 81 yards on six targets in Monday's 41-14 win over the Patriots.

Bowe made a few nice plays against Darrelle Revis en route to his first 80-yard showing since November of 2012. While Bowe is the team's unquestioned No. 1 wide receiver, he's no more important to the Kansas City passing attack than are RB Jamaal Charles and TE Travis Kelce. That may not seem like a ton of competition for targets, but the Chiefs prefer to run the ball, and don't take many shots downfield.

Bowe had three catches on five targets for 32 yards in Sunday's win at Miami.

Bowe was the targeted the most of any wide receiver, but backup running back Joe McKnight caught a couple of touchdowns, while emerging tight end Travis Kelce also scored in the air. Alex Smith prefers to spread things around and throw shorter passes, so unless the veteran quarterback decides to change his game, it's hard to imagine Bowe being a huge part of the passing attack.

Bowe had three receptions (six targets) for 40 yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss at Denver.

Bowe, who was returning from a one-game suspension, wasn't targeted much early, but ended up tying for the second most looks on the team. He also had a key 21-yard catch in the closing minutes of regulation that appeared to set up Kansas City for the game-tying score. The Chiefs might be forced to air it out more in upcoming weeks, depending on the status of Jamaal Charles, who left Sunday's game with an ankle injury, so Bowe could see an uptick in targets.

Bowe was reinstated Tuesday after serving his one-game suspension in Week 1, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

The ban resulted from a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. Upon his return, Bowe will act as the clear-cut No. 1 threat in the passing game. However, in the first year of coach Andy Reid's system last season, Bowe totaled 57 catches (on 103 targets) for 673 yards and five touchdowns.

Coach Andy Reid relayed that Bowe, who was suspended for one game by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy, is slated to be back in team's wideout mix Sunday, when the Chiefs play the Broncos, the Kansas City Star reports.

Once Bowe is officially reinstated in advance of Week 2, the Chiefs won't have any trouble finding a spot on their 53-man roster for him, with linebacker Derrick Johnson and defensive end Mike DeVito both out for the season.

Bowe (quad) is among the Chiefs' scratches for Thursday's preseason finale.

As is fellow wideout Junior Hemingway, a scenario that will allow the Chiefs to evaluate some of their other options at the position in advance of roster cut-downs. Bowe, in any case, is slated to miss the team's regular season opener against Tennessee due to a one-game suspension.

Bowe (quadriceps) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, kansas.com reports.

We'll consider Bowe day-to-day for now, but in any case, he is slated to miss the Chiefs' regular season opener against Tennessee due to a one-game suspension. Frankie Hammond, who has been seeing added key reps in practice in Bowe's absence, could thus be in line for an expanded role in Week 1.
