Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe spent all of last week away from the team while he served his one-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.
As you might expect, following the Chiefs’ disappointing 26-10 loss to Tennessee on Sunday, he’s being welcomed back with open arms this week.
“We’ll ease him back in and make sure he gets himself back in the swing of things,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday.
Reid was then asked if Bowe, who practiced Wednesday but was dealing with a quad injury before his suspension, will be a full go Sunday against Denver.
“Yeah, I believe he will,” Reid said.
Bowe signed a five-year, $56 million contract last offseason and approached career lows with 57 catches, 673 yards and five touchdowns in 2013. But he hired a nutritionist and a personal trainer for the first time this offseason.
“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.”
