Dwayne Bowe will be joining the Kansas City Chiefs for practice this week, the first practice of the year for Bowe. As GM Scott Pioli explained on the Chiefs-Rams broadcast on Saturday night, Bowe is subject to the three-day acclimation period, which basically means he can't put on pads for three days.

Friday, the day he signed, and Saturday were the first two days of the acclimation period. Sunday was a scheduled off day so that doesn't count. That means today is the final day of Bowe's non-pads work. He can participate in full pads on Tuesday.

So that brings up the question everyone's wondering: Will Bowe play against the Seahawks on Friday?

I'm starting to have my doubts the more I think about it. The Chiefs are practicing only Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Bowe will have had a maximum of two full practices (about five hours) before Thursday's travel day and then Friday's game.

That's not very much, especially in a new offense. I suppose using him with a limited portion of the playbook could be a possibility. I just don't think it's a given that Bowe will play but we'll see how the Chiefs handle it.

Even after the Seattle game, the Chiefs will only have two practices before the Thursday night preseason finale against the Packers. That puts the total number of padded practices for Bowe between now and the end of the preseason at four.
