Dwayne Bowe will play for Chiefs on Sunday despite weekend arrest
The former Pro Bowl wide receiver spent the rest of the afternoon preparing for Sunday night’s AFC West showdown against the Broncos, a game in which he’ll start despite a weekend arrest for speeding and possession of marijuana.
“There are rules and regulations put in place and we’ll abide by the rules and regulations, and we’ll make sure we take all of the information that comes out as it goes through the process,” Reid said. “That’s where we’re going with it.”
Bowe did not speak to reporters, instead issuing a statement in which he apologized “for the distraction I have caused the team this week.”
“Due to the nature of the pending matter, I am unable to make any further comment on the situation,” Bowe’s statement said.
According to police, Bowe’s wallet was discovered along with two containers that held about one-third of an ounce of suspected marijuana. Bowe was cited for speeding and possession of a controlled substance. He posted $750 bond and faces a Dec. 18 court appearance.
The Chiefs were off last week before beginning their preparations for Denver.
“I addressed him, had that opportunity to talk to him, and I’ll leave it at that,” Reid said. “There are laws, rules and regulations, and I’ll leave it at that.”
It is unlikely Bowe will be disciplined until after his court date. While the Chiefs are barred from disciplining the former Pro Bowl wide receiver for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in the past has handed down one-game suspensions and fines of an additional game check for similar cases.
Bowe, who signed five-year, $56 million deal in the offseason, has struggled to live up to the expectations that come with being one of the game’s best-paid wide receivers. He’s second on the team with 33 catches for 369 yards and two touchdowns during the Chiefs‘ 9-0 start.
