Chiefs Coach Says Dwayne Bowe Looks Ready To Go

As you all know, Kansas City Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe returns from a four-game suspension this week.  Chiefs head coach Todd Haley was asked about his receiver today and said it appears he's ready to go physically and the challenge will be getting him ready to go mentally.

"Just in looking at him it looks like he’s done a pretty good job of keeping himself in condition. We’ve got to get him up to speed in any of the new stuff we’re doing."

Per league rules, Haley nor any of the players were allowed contact with Bowe while he was on suspension.

He also said he was "personally excited" for Bowe's return because he's one of the Chiefs best players and, prior to the injury, he was making good strides in his development.

"As far as I know there are no physical limitations and it will all be a matter of getting him up to speed mentally and getting him back into the mix," Haley explained. "I know he’s a professional and from the looks of what I can see today and talking to him he’s done a pretty good job of keeping himself in condition and says he has. It’s what I expected him to do."

This is good to hear, especially when you consider that Bowe was suspended for taking a diuretic partly due to the fact that he wasn't in shape over the offseason.  I imagine this entire experience has demonstrated to him the importance of staying in shape.

"I know he’s excited to be back and we’re excited to have him back. When we get a chance to get one of our better and more productive offensive players back I think that’s a big thing for us."
