Dwayne Bowe Returns To Kansas City Chiefs Practice

KANSAS CITY MO - DECEMBER 26: Receiver Dwayne Bowe #82 of the Kansas City Chiefs outruns Jason McCourty #30 of the Tennessee Titans after making a catch on a 75 yard touchdown play during the game on December 26 2010 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City Missouri.

On Wednesday the Kansas City Chiefs signed WR Kevin Curtis while WR Dwayne Bowe was absent from practice. Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said Bowe had an illness and left it at that. Of course this brought up memories of the last time a player had an "illness", missed practice and saw the team sign a player at that position -- Matt Cassel and the appendectomy.

From what we can tell Bowe was simply sick and he was not getting an organ removed, which is good news. Even better news is 810 WHB's man on the ground Danny Clinkscale reporting that Bowe is indeed practicing today.

Whew. The Chiefs have been incredibly lucky (or well conditioned) this year when it comes to injuries so the thought of losing Bowe in the playoffs was enough to make me cringe (a lot).

The bad news is that Brian Waters is not practicing for the second consecutive day. We still have no idea what's up with Waters and, with "illness" meaning anything from stomach bug to an appendectomy, it's hard to predict what's going on.
