Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe is ready for his first game action in new coordinator Brian Daboll’s offense.
Kansas City head coach Romeo Crennel confirmed today that Bowe will be on the field on Friday night when the Chiefs play the Seahawks, just a week after signing his franchise tender.
“I will play him some, just give him a couple of plays here and there, but I don’t think he’s ready to play a whole game or anything like that,’’ Crennel said.
Even if he’s not ready for much playing time, it makes sense for Bowe to get some playing time this week, as the third preseason game is his best opportunity to experience live game action with quarterback Matt Cassel and the rest of the starters. The Chiefs need Bowe to learn as much of the playbook as he can in the next two weeks, and on Friday night he’ll learn by playing.
