The Kansas City Star claims Dwayne Bowe "looked great" during offseason workouts.
Bowe hired a nutritionist and personal trainer for the first time in his career, and is participating in Larry Fitzgerald's camp in Minnesota. NFL Films' Greg Cosell recently noted that he thought Bowe looked slower than ever on tape last season. "I remember Ron Jaworski and I talking about that you know Week 7, Week 8," Cosell said on John Hansen's podcast. "We really thought Dwayne Bowe lost something. You know he was never a burner as you said, but he wasn't slow either. He wasn't a plodder. There were times last year I thought he kinda looked that way. So this is a very interesting year for Dwayne Bowe." Jul 13 - 2:40 PM

Dwayne Bowe has been working with a nutritionist and personal trainer for the last two months.

Bowe says it's the first time in his career he's hired the combo to prepare for a season. There were early-season rumors last year that Bowe was playing too heavy, though it wasn't evident on his game tape. His production picked up late in the season as Alex Smith showed an improved willingness to pull the trigger on intermediate and downfield throws. Bowe is entering his age-30 season. We don't expect a huge bounce back, but he'll he worth a look as a fantasy WR3.

Dwayne Bowe pleaded guilty to defective equipment and littering charges and paid a $610 fine to resolve the marijuana possession matter against him.

Bowe was popped for marijuana possession back in November. Since it was his first arrest for possession, he was allowed to pay a fine. Bowe should avoid a suspension but could wind up being placed in the substance-abuse program.

Dwayne Bowe's attorney filed a motion to suppress evidence related to a November arrest for marijuana possession.

The attorney contends the search of Bowe's vehicle and person was conducted without a valid warrant, without probable cause, and in an unreasonable manner. If the judge grants the motion, the evidence in the case would be thrown out. Bowe could still be subject to league discipline over the incident.

Dwayne Bowe said he plans on changing the way he eats this offseason and wants to work on his endurance.

"One thing I want to work on — my endurance," Bowe said. "I was really, really tired that last game." Bowe, who is listed at 6-foot-2, 221, added that he wants to play around 208 pounds in 2014 in an effort to become "more explosive and faster." He's coming off one of his worst statistical seasons, but it wasn't all Bowe's fault. Alex Smith enjoyed checking the ball down to Jamaal Charles and his tight ends. Bowe will be drafted as a mid-range WR3 in fantasy next summer.

Dwayne Bowe suffered a "mild" foot sprain in Saturday's Wild Card loss.

Bowe never checked out against the Colts, so we assume his injury is truly "mild." He was the intended target on Kansas City's final play from scrimmage. Bowe was highly disappointing in the first season of his five-year, $56 million contract, catching just 57 passes for 673 yards and five touchdowns. He was more effective after the Chiefs began featuring him more out of the slot, where the odds of weak-armed Alex Smith targeting him increase. Bowe will be a mid-range WR3 for 2014.
Jan 7 - 7:08 PM

Dwayne Bowe caught eight passes for 150 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Wild Card loss to the Colts.

It was by far Bowe's best game of the season, as he blew by his regular-season highs for both catches (seven) and yards (70). Bowe made a mockery of the Colts' tackling on a 63-yard catch in the first quarter, and whipped Vontae Davis on a six-yard slant for his score. This being Bowe, however, he failed to stay in bounds on what would have been a first-down catch on Kansas City's final play from scrimmage, a 4th-and-11 with under two minutes remaining. It wasn't a perfectly-thrown ball, but should have been caught by a $56 million No. 1 receiver. Used more out of the slot down the stretch of an otherwise forgettable (57/673/5) year, Bowe will remain on the WR3 radar for 2014.
Jan 4 - 9:05 PM

Dwayne Bowe (concussion) is listed as probable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Colts.

Bowe was a full participant in practice all week after sitting out the regular season finale with a concussion. He'll resume No. 1 receiver duties opposite Donnie Avery, with Dexter McCluster playing in the slot.
Jan 3 - 6:34 PM

Dwayne Bowe (concussion) has been cleared to play in Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Colts.

Bowe would have sat out in Week 17 even if he didn't sustain a concussion in Week 16. He'll be fine to serve as Alex Smith's top target Saturday. Handcuffed by Smith's timidness and the Chiefs' ball control attack, Bowe averaged 3.8 catches for 44.8 yards with five touchdowns during the regular season.
Jan 1 - 12:57 PM

Dwayne Bowe (concussion) returned to practice Tuesday.

Bowe has been cleared to practice but has yet to be cleared to play. Barring a setback, we'd expect him to be out there for Saturday's Wild Card Round game against the Colts.
Tue, Dec 31, 2013 12:53:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe (concussion) is "making progress," and expected to return to practice on Tuesday.

This has been the expectation all along. Barring a setback, Bowe will resume No. 1 receiver duties for Saturday's Wild Card tilt with the Colts.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 01:18:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Bowe will return for the first round of the playoffs.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 02:24:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Bowe was absent from Wednesday's injury report, so he either suffered the injury in Thursday's practice or at the tail end of Wednesday's session. There's no way Bowe will play in Sunday's meaningless regular-season finale with the Chiefs already locked into the No. 5 seed. The question is whether he'll be ready for the Wild Card round of the playoffs. Bowe does not have a history of concussions at the professional level.
Thu, Dec 26, 2013 05:32:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe caught five passes for 46 yards in Week 16 against the Colts.

Bowe drew a team-high ten targets, mostly on short comeback routes and crossing patterns. The catches and yards led the team in what was a pitiful showing from the offense. Bowe hasn't topped 70 yards in a game this season after signing a big deal. It hasn't been his fault. Alex Smith simply can't get him the ball deep. Bowe and the Chiefs wrap up the regular season in San Diego.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 05:24:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe caught three passes for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win at Oakland.

Despite a plus matchup, Bowe was extremely quiet as the Chiefs featured the screen game and rode their defense to a blowout win. Bowe saw just four targets and hasn't topped seven targets since Nov. 17. On paper, the Chiefs' No. 1 wideout should feast on the Colts' secondary in Week 16, but we've grown to know better. Bowe has zero 100-yard games on the season in the Chiefs' conservative passing attack. He'll be a low-upside WR3.
