While the San Diego Chargers will be without one of their top players in kicker Nate Kaeding, it looks as though the Kansas City Chiefs won't have to go without their top receiving target in Dwayne Bowe. Pro Football Talk reports that there "doesn't appear to be any question" that Bowe will play in Sunday's game.

Bowe has been featured on the team's injury report since Thursday, and was listed as "questionable" on Friday after being limited in practice on both days with a groin injury. He was not on the injury report on Wednesday. According to the report, Bowe's injury isn't anything serious and he's expected to play as normal.

With the potential to actually be tied atop the AFC West after such a poor start, Bowe's absence would be bad for the Chiefs, who had 11 players listed on the injury report on Friday, including Dexter McCluster and Kevin Boss. Bowe is the team's leading receiver though, with 18 catches for 234 yards and a pair of touchdowns. On top of McCluster and Boss, fellow receiving target Steve Breaston is listed on the injury report as well. Outside of Boss, who is out, everyone else is "questionable."
