NJ Chiefs Fan isn't feeling great so I'm taking over again. Wish him well in the comments. Here's today's Kansas City Chiefs news.

It's his words that make this so disappointing.

"A lot of pressure, still a lot of pressure," he said earlier this month at Chiefs training camp. "I've got to come out here and perform and show leadership."

It's his actions that make this so surprising.

Bowe went through normal position drills with the receivers, but whenever the Chiefs practiced special teams on one field, he went to an adjacent field with quarterback Matt Cassel and worked on patterns under the supervision of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and wide receivers coach Nick Sirianni.

"Whoever steps into that role is going to be the starter that day, and we as a team are going to be glad that they worked as hard as they did as backups. Take opportunity when it comes."

For now, Studebaker is the leading candidate. He's served as an effective pinch hitter throughout his Chiefs career though most of his action has come at the outside linebacker spot opposite Hali.

Hali practiced with the Chiefs on Monday, occupying his normal spot as the right outside linebacker. He will be eligible to practice for the next two weeks and play in the final two preseason games.

He won't practice the week of the Atlanta game or play against the Falcons. But he can return to the Chiefs the day after the game and play in the next game on Sept. 16 against the Bills in Buffalo.

Wide Receiver Dwayne Bowe on the possibility of playing in the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks:

"That's the coaches' decision. If I can learn all the plays before then, then I'm there, but if it takes longer, then it takes a little longer."
