Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe may not have played in Week 17 against the Chargers if he was healthy, but a concussion made that a moot point.

There’s nothing moot about this week’s matchup with the Colts, though, and the Chiefs will want Bowe in the lineup to help them attempt to advance. There’s good news on that front on Tuesday as Bowe has received clearance to practice with the team. Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports that Bowe still awaits clearance for Sunday’s game, however.

Linebacker Tamba Hali is not practicing Tuesday because of the knee injury that sidelined him last week. Hali had 11 sacks during the regular season and was selected for the Pro Bowl last week.

The Chiefs also made a roster move on Tuesday when they placed linebacker James-Michael Johnson on injured reserve because of an ankle injury. They signed linebacker Robert James to take his place on the roster.
