Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe returned to practice today for the first time since his four week suspension and stepped right back into his spot alongside Chris Chambers with the first-team offense.
Bowe looked smooth and conditioned in his return to the field. His teammates looked genuinely excited to have #82 back in pads.
On the injury front, two injured Chiefs were in full dress. Both DE Glenn Dorsey (knee) and G Brian Waters (hamstring) suffered injuries vs. Buffalo, with Dorsey’s thought of as potentially serious. Each player participated with drills this morning, although Waters did step to the side for select agility work during the individual portion of work.
No players started in the “rehab zone” to the side of the field, but DE Wallace Gilberry left the indoor facility shortly after individual work began to head outdoors with strength and conditioning coach Cedric Smith.
I’m surprised that Bowe was back with the first team that quickly. Don’t get me wrong, the offense badly needs him, but he was needed in training camp and still spent plenty of time running with the second and third team as punishment for being out of shape.
This time around the Chiefs best receiver is in tip-top shape, so he has that going for him. I just expected him to have to work his way back up after hurting the team with his decision to use a diuretic.
Great to see both Dorsey and Waters on the field and working. The Chiefs are so thin on both lines that it would be a huge blow to be without either player against the Browns.
