Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been placed on the injured reserve list, according to a report from NBC's Pro Football Talk. Bowe left Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns in the first half after suffering rib injuries while throwing a block.
Bowe will miss all three of the Chiefs' remaining games this season because of his placement on the injured reserve, but Chiefs fans are pondering a larger question: Will Bowe play in Kansas City again?
Before the 2012 seaeson, Bowe signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs after the two could not agree on a long-term deal, and he is set to be a free agent at season's end. With the team staring down a record no better than 5-11 by season's end, Bowe may be interested in exploring his options.
Bowe caught 59 passes for 801 yards and three touchdowns this season, including a 102-yard, two-touchdown performance against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. The sixth-year receiver from LSU has spent all of his professional career with the Chiefs, hauling in a total of 5,728 yards and 39 touchdowns.
