Dwayne Bowe WR KC 1 Month

Bowe (finger) will not practice Tuesday due to a sore quadriceps, ESPN.com reports.

Bowe played through a finger ailment to catch five passes for 62 yards in Sunday's preseason game versus the Panthers, but in doing so, the wideout apparently added a groin issue to his current medical woes. That being said, there's nothing to suggest Bowe's sore groin is cause for concern and his finger ailment obviously didn't impact his effectiveness much. In fact, the biggest qualm Bowe has is probably the one-game suspension he'll have to serve to begin this season.

Bowe (finger) caught five passes (on six targets) for 62 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Panthers.

Bowe will miss the Chiefs' regular season opener against the Titans due to a suspension, but his effort Sunday was encouraging in that he didn't appear hampered by the finger issue that had resulted in his share of training camp drops. Upon his return to action in Week 2 against the Broncos, Bowe will be in line to reclaim his starting wideout slot, a position that Junior Hemingway could man in Week 1, assuming the hip injury Hemingway suffered Sunday doesn't linger.

Bowe (finger) has been suspended for one game and will miss the Chiefs' season opener against the Titans, ESPN.com reports. The report notes that the suspension stems from a Nov. 10, 2013 incident in which the wideout was pulled over in Riverside, Mo., for speeding and possession of marijuana.

Bowe, who has been hampered in training camp by a finger issue, will thus be eligible to return to action in Week 2 against the Broncos, at which time, he should resume his starting wideout duties for the Chiefs. In the team's opener, NFL.com suggests that Junior Hemingway is a candidate to start opposite Donnie Avery in Bowe's place.

Bowe has been dealing with a finger injury in training camp, ESPN.com reports. "His finger is shot," coach Andy Reid indicated Thursday. "It's been thrown out of place about 15 times and he's not catching the ball. But he's getting his work done. You can practice with that type of thing."

Despite being nicked up, Bowe hasn't missed any practice time and he's not among the Chiefs expected to miss Sunday night's preseason game against the Panthers. The ailment does, however, help explain why the wideout has had some issues with drops in training camp thus far. It remains to be seen if Bowe's finger issue persists, but at this stage it appears to be something that the Chiefs' top wideout should be able to continue to play through.

Bowe, who dropped a pair of passes and deflected another for an interception during Wednesday's practice, hasn't had a great training camp thus far, according to ESPN.com.

Bowe, who turns 30 in September, in no danger of losing his starting wideout role, but coming off a 2013 campaign in which he caught just 57 passes for 673 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games, it's clear that the Chiefs are looking for more from Bowe, who is slated to start opposite Donnie Avery this season. On the plus side, Chiefs wide receivers coach David Culley indicated that Bowe is in much better shape than he was at this stage last summer and given the team's other options at hand in the passing game, Alex Smith and the Chiefs have little choice but to hope that Bowe parlays his fitness into improved on-field results.

Dwayne Bowe says he's "made the initiative to be in better shape" this season and is down to 212 pounds.

Bowe's been playing at 222-225 since entering the league. This offseason, he hired a nutritionist and focused on a diet that featured fish, vegetables, and fewer carbs. Bowe is entering his age-30 season and has made it a point to focus on his conditioning in order to continue playing at a high level. We're not expecting a big bounce-back season because he'll be limited mostly by Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense going through Jamaal Charles. But he has WR3 appeal.

The Kansas City Star claims Dwayne Bowe "looked great" during offseason workouts.

Bowe hired a nutritionist and personal trainer for the first time in his career, and is participating in Larry Fitzgerald's camp in Minnesota. NFL Films' Greg Cosell recently noted that he thought Bowe looked slower than ever on tape last season. "I remember Ron Jaworski and I talking about that you know Week 7, Week 8," Cosell said on John Hansen's podcast. "We really thought Dwayne Bowe lost something. You know he was never a burner as you said, but he wasn't slow either. He wasn't a plodder. There were times last year I thought he kinda looked that way. So this is a very interesting year for Dwayne Bowe."

Dwayne Bowe has been working with a nutritionist and personal trainer for the last two months.

Bowe says it's the first time in his career he's hired the combo to prepare for a season. There were early-season rumors last year that Bowe was playing too heavy, though it wasn't evident on his game tape. His production picked up late in the season as Alex Smith showed an improved willingness to pull the trigger on intermediate and downfield throws. Bowe is entering his age-30 season. He'll be worth a look as a WR3 in re-draft leagues.

Dwayne Bowe pleaded guilty to defective equipment and littering charges and paid a $610 fine to resolve the marijuana possession matter against him.

Bowe was popped for marijuana possession back in November. Since it was his first arrest for possession, he was allowed to pay a fine. Bowe should avoid a suspension but could wind up being placed in the substance-abuse program.
