The Kansas City Chiefs have already listed wide receiver Dwayne Bowe as inactive for their Week 15 game against the Oakland Raiders. Bowe broke two ribs during Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns. The 28-year-old receiver is nearing his final days with the organization as an impending free agent. It is expected that second-year wideout Jon Baldwin will see a big jump in playing time with Bowe at least a week.
It's been a rough year for Bowe. He is on pace for his least productive season excluding another injury-shortened season he experienced back in 2009. For the past two seasons, the former LSU star had caught at least 70 passes for over 1,100 receiving yards. Those numbers will drop by nearly a third during a season that the Chiefs really struggled with their quarterback play. It's likely best for Bowe to move on while the Chiefs attempt to rebuild and retool their offense.
