According to Jim Trotter of SI.com, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is expected to not miss any regular season games.
“I’m told, however, there is virtually no chance that Bowe will pass up game checks that amount to $559,000 a week. He skipped offseason workouts while hoping to land a multi-year deal, so he could be behind when he finally reports. The Chiefs have a new offensive coordinator and new playbook; how long that will take him to get up to speed — and how severely his absence might limit his effectiveness — are questions no one can answer,’ wrote Trotter.
The same reason Bowe is expected to show up for the regular season, is the reason why Maurice Jones-Drew and Mike Wallace will also show up. They all can’t afford to miss out on game checks.

Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish and new Kansas Jayhawk head Charlie Weis has not exactly made many friends during his career. His stints as an assistant coach under Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick seemed to go well enough; he collected one ring as an offensive assistant and special teams coach on the 1990 New York Giants team coached by Parcells, and was awarded the other three...
In 2010, the Chiefs made the playoffs, winning the AFC West with 10 victories. In 2011, they won just 7 games, but suffered major injuries to Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki, and Matt Cassel. Charles went down for the season week 2. Moeaki missed the entire year, as did Berry, with the exception of 5 snaps in the opener before tearing his ACL. Cassel, meanwhile, missed 7...
Who knows? Cassel is coming off another injury, and he’s mediocre to begin with. The Chiefs are getting a lot of love from some analysts, but Cassel is still a huge question mark.
Also, here’s this nugget about the Chiefs:
There’s no doubt that there’s enormous risk involved in drafting a quarterback in the early rounds, and the Chiefs had other issues facing them in recent...
Last September, Chiefs Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry tore the ACL in his left knee in the first quarter of the team’s Week 1 loss to Buffalo, cutting his second season in the league excruciatingly short. Berry may have been physically incapacitated, but the mind remained active. In order to stave off insanity while he couldn’t play football, Berry reportedly wrote three screenplays...
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jon Baldwin is determined not to let his return to training camp bring back bad memories.
A locker-room fight last August with then-teammate Thomas Jones left Baldwin with a broken right hand, an injury that derailed the first-round pick's rookie season.
Nearly a year later there are still more questions than answers as...
The Chiefs signed offensive tackle Ray Willis and waived fullback Taylor Gentry. Kansas City needed to add another veteran offensive tackle when Tony Ugoh decided to retire after being signed last week. "He retired from the game and there's nothing we can do about that," Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. "You've got to have a desire and you've got to...
The Chiefs signed veteran offensive tackle Ray Willis and waived fullback Taylor Gentry. Willis spent his first five seasons with the Seahawks and has also spent time with the Dolphins and Jets. He was released by the Jets in June. He has played in 44 NFL games with 26 starts. Gentry was signed as an undrafted rookie out of North Carolina State in May.
LATROBE, Pa. -- Todd Haley laughs about it, Ben Roethlisberger shrugs.
Neither believe anything will deter them from winning games for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The quarterback and new coach shrug off concerns about two strong personalities uniting, offseason chatter be dadgumed. Haley called called the worries "comical."
"I've heard some of it just through feedback...
Hard to believe, but with training camps having begun and August already here, the 2012 NFL season is mercifully at our doorstep. That means fewer ‘Stephen Strasburg is going to get shut down’ stories and more ‘HOLY CRAP, TIM TEBOW IS SHIRTLESS IN THE RAIN!!!’ stories. Thank. God.
Even better, the 2012 NFL pre-season arrives with no lockout-related...
If it were not for the St. Louis Rams last season, the Kansas City Chiefs would have scored the least amount of points in the NFL. Points in the NFL typically translates to points for your fantasy team. If you were heavily relying on any Kansas City Chief last season, chances are you got burned.
Whether from injury, underproduction, or a comical quarterback unable to...
Comments on the Kansas City Chiefs by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (18)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 6): Crazy AFC West. Chiefs and Cassel play well.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 14): KC fans booed Matt Cassel at recent team function, but we get sense there'll be more cheers with bounce-back season we see for Chiefs.
Every year NFL players holdout and sit out of Training Camp and this year is no different with Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe and Maurice Jones-Drew are holding out this year. A couple players at one position get paid and another player in that same position will want that same money. They will not report to [...]
