Chiefs say Bowe has “illness”

Dwayne Bowe, Michael Griffin, Cortland Finnegan

The Kansas City Chiefs have provided an answer regarding the whereabouts of receiver Dwayne Bowe.

Per Nick Wright of 610 Sports, coach Todd Haley said that Bowe will appear on the injury report as not practicing due to an illness.  (Maybe he really does have appendicitis; the Chiefs supplied the same description several weeks ago for quarterback Matt Cassel.)

Wright says that Bowe was limping badly in the tunnel on Sunday, when the Chiefs played the Raiders.

    I’m telling you, he saw Champ Bailey again, and it made him sick, and a no show like December 5th.

    I fully expect the Ravens to have this game in hand by halftime.

  3. burntorangehorn says: Jan 5, 2011 2:49 PM

    Oh crap. :(

    I don’t really like Dwayne Bowe, but it would be a lot harder for KC to win without him.

    he is buthurt after laying down for the raiders….

    Hope he is ok.

    Undisclosed “illness” can be scary.

    Limping badly last Sunday? That’s funny, because Bowe played the entire game, did not limp ONCE, and even played the very last snap of Chiefs offense for the day. In fact, he was a blocker on a 4th down run (a half assed block because the run play was just a way to kill the clock and get off the field in the wanning seconds).

    The ONLY time I saw Bowe limp SLIGHTLY was when he dropped a deep sideline pass in the early part of the 4th quarter (and he didn’t even land hard or awkwardly)

    But he seemed to be MUCH better as he popped up quickly after a high incomplete pass in the endzone later in the 4th quarter

    And then he looked fine here

    Must have developed a heavy limp once he realized how garbage his team is and knows he has no chance of beating the Ravens.

    It appears every injury is identified by location and type but “illness” is all that is needed? Anything from PMS to cancer is listed as the same thing?

  10. thebigtuna2 says: Jan 5, 2011 3:15 PM

    Maybe he has the Albert Haynesworth illness. Too much goose.

    Bowe is weak minded and a rat. I think Todd Haley sees this and is looking to move into a different direction. The move to sign a possession receiver means that the Chiefs are going with a more West Coast offense; i.e. short passes, screens, and dump offs because after the CLINIC the Raiders put on Kansas City, the Ravens will be coming after Cassel fast, hard, and frequently this Sunday.

  12. moneymike23 says: Jan 5, 2011 3:24 PM

    They are going to lose the game anyway like they always do, this is non story.

  13. tdl8 says: Jan 5, 2011 3:29 PM

    Bowe is faking an illness because he knows they are going to get destroyed by Baltimore and he doesn’t want to have to make up excuses for why they lost after he talked so much crap a few weeks ago and made the prediction that KC was going to win the Super Bowl this year!

    Quick contradiction between lines 2 and 4, as I have it pasted. From rape to “being around in the 4th”…sounds like the Big Ben’s predicaments.

  17. somesome says: Jan 5, 2011 3:45 PM

    Ravens will win with 4 sacks and +5 turnovers including two Ed Reed INTs.

    Score will not matter.

    Chiefs went 2-4 against teams with winning records only defeating the chargers. They are definitely playing better but still wont be ready for the Ravens, who played much better competition in the AFC North/East

    Balt 23
    KC 13

    This is very true but the Chiefs have a big advantage of being at home (where we obviously play the best). Can we beat the Ravens? No clue. But being at home is definitely our best bet. We are a young team on the rise with great management and coaching so it should only get better from here. I guess we will find out next year when we have one of the hardest schedules (currently, could change in the off-season as teams trade, cut, etc) in the NFL.

    I don’t expect a blowout, because that’s just not the Ravens’ M.O. They play to the level of their competition…but they also don’t lose games like this. They won’t take the Chiefs lightly. They’ll be prepared. They’ll win. But they’ll make it more interesting than it needs to be…

    Just listened to vinny cerrato on local radio here in Bmore and he called the Chiefs a flat out fraud…one of several reasons he mentioned is something I noticed. Vinny didn’t go into this much detail, but consider this:

    ***The Chiefs have not played one game this year against a team with more than 10 wins. The Ravens played 6 of those teams, 4 on the road, and went 3-3…and led in the 4th Q in all 6 games.

    ***The Chiefs only played 3 games all year against teams with a winning record (10-6 Indy & 9-7 Chargers twice). They went 1-2 in those games. In other words, they built their stellar 10-6 record against THIRTEEN teams with non-winning records…2 against the 8-8 Raiders (lost them both) and 11 against losers.

    ***The Chiefs were 7-1 at home. Great. They beat 6 losing teams at home, and the 9-7 Chargers in week one.

    ***The Chiefs haven’t beaten a team with a winning record since week 1. They have played only one game against a winning team since week 5 – and they got pasted 31-0 by the Chargers.

    Anyway, games aren’t won on paper, but it’s like the Ravens and Chiefs played the season in two different leagues. They are young & inexperienced, and haven’t faced competition like they will see this Sunday. All that said, it will be closer than it should be. But bottom line, the Ravens don’t lose to teams like this… Give the points!

  23. dansyndersux says: Jan 5, 2011 4:22 PM

    Forgot to add chiefs also defeated the Jags.

  24. ballotpull says: Jan 5, 2011 4:29 PM

    7-1 at home, but the one was a blueprint to spank the chefs just like the raiders did…

  25. georgeanderson2 says: Jan 5, 2011 4:34 PM

    You really can’t believe that Ravens are overrated? It’s not like their 12 -4 record was a cake walk. That is just being a homer with your head in the sand.

    The Chiefs have had a fine season in comparison to were they have been over the past few seasons. They are just an inexperienced playoff team who is going up against a veteran team, who is not happy with just making the playoffs as Chiefs and their fan base are. It is always exciting when your team goes to the playoffs, but it will be over on Sunday for KC. Hopefully they can build off the success they had this past season.

    Hopefully Cam takes his foot off the brakes and teh

    The Chiefs haven’t beaten a team with a winning record all year. The Ravens are the only team in the NFL to have a lead in the 4th qtr of every game. They lost 4 games all year, and 3 of those games were against teams that have a bye this week ( NE, Pitt, ATL). Ravens should win by 7 or more. If Bowe can’t play it will be worse.

  27. haleyistheman00 says: Jan 5, 2011 5:03 PM

    Its fun to see all the raiders fan actually think they did soomething good this year. The hold probably the worst record going undefeated in the division but only finished 8-8 oh and thy didn’t make the playoffs. Anyway the chiefs played a bad game on Sunday. Just like how the raiders had a bad day against the cardinals dolphins seahawks 49ers jags all the teams that the chiefs killed.

  28. huskersrock1 says: Jan 5, 2011 5:41 PM

    Maybe he got it from one of the groupies that were waiting for him in his hotel room when he is on the road.

  29. rwjk says: Jan 5, 2011 6:18 PM

    listen you guys, stop underestimating the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS. they are really good, ok. they only lost to the broncos by 20, the chargers by 31, and the raiders by 21. and lets not forget they SWEPT a little division, i dont know you might have heard of them, called the NFC WEST. the ravens are soooooo overrated ok. the only good teams that they beat were the jets, the steelers, the saints, and the buccaneers. ok everybody i rest my case. lets goooo chiefffsssssss. it feels so good to be back in the playoffs, cus we havent been here in 27 years.

  30. wetpaperbag2 says: Jan 5, 2011 7:03 PM

    It’s likely because Todd Haley isn’t enamored with Bowe because of being an underachiever for most of his career in KC. Or perhaps it because of his helping up Raiders’ WR Louis Murphy on the sidelines after Murphy slipped by the bench area. What made it worse, Bowe even patted Murphy on the butt like an “attaboy” type of thing. Helping up and patting the butt of a long time hated team rival’s player is almost an unforgivable offense to the football gods.

    Here’s the play:

    They did do something good this year. They swept the Chiefs. They lost games to piss-poor opponents for sure, which cost them the division, but they did not lose to the Chiefs. You clowns should be grateful for Oakland’s inconsistency. It’s what got you in the playoffs.
