Dwayne Bowe back at practice

Kansas City Chiefs No. 1 wide receiver Dwayne Bowe suffered a concussion last week, and it was speculated that he suffered the concussion when he was hit by Indianapolis Colts hulking safety LaRon Landry in the team’s Week 16 contest. There were others who believed that Bowe suffered the injury in practice on Thursday, but it was clear that the concussion sealed Bowe’s fate as an inactive against the San Diego Chargers. He would have most likely missed the game even if he wasn’t injured due to the Chiefs desire to rest him, but the severity of his concussion was never given.

Bowe was fully expected to return to practice today, and ESPN NFL Nation’s Adam Teicher reports that Bowe is back on the practice field today after being cleared to practice. However, Teicher adds that Bowe hasn’t been officially cleared to play in this week’s playoff game against the Colts, meaning that he has one more concussion test to pass in the league’s protocol.

I would be shocked if Bowe didn’t suit up for the Chiefs Wild Card game, and he has his work cut out for him against shutdown corner Vontae Davis, who is playing at an elite level again now in a contract year. I thought Davis was snubbed from the Pro Bowl, and he’s going to give Bowe all he can handle on Saturday.
