Dwayne Bowe put up a really smart image of himself when he got arrested for speeding while in possession of marijuana. The news hit the headlines as if Dwayne Bowe is in jail, he can’t play in the Chiefs showdown with the Broncos.
Looks like luck is in favor of Chiefs, Bowe will be playing according to reports.
Ed Werder of ESPN reported on Wednesday morning that Bowe is all-systems go despite the recent arrest.
“He’s playing,” a source told Werder.
Based on the current setup of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the process for Bowe is to have the courts handle his case before he’s disciplined by the league (or the Chiefs).
In other words, the Chiefs can’t do anything other than play Bowe. Andy Reid is scheduled to speak on early Wednesday afternoon. It’s possible he’ll reveal more information relating to Bowe’s situation, but the more likely scenario involves him simply saying they’ll let the process play out.
This is the biggest game of the Chiefs season — by far — to date. It’s not surprising that Bowe will ultimately end up playing.
