And just as the Chiefs finally have seen a problem player land with a new team, another promising young player has become a major problem.
Receiver Dwayne Bowe has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances.
The team announced the move earlier in the hour. The suspension begins immediately.
The development means that Bowe has exhausted all internal appeals, or opted not to pursue them.
The specific substance for which he tested positive isn’t known, and it’s possible that the violation occurred in 2008 or earlier. It’s also possible that Bowe didn’t test positive; some players have been suspended based on evidence of possession of banned substances.
He’ll miss games against the Steelers, Chargers, Broncos, and Bills. He’ll then return for the final three games of the year, against the Browns, Bengals, and Broncos.
