Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will play in his first pre-season game on Friday.
Kansas City head coach Romeo Crennel confirmed today that Bowe will be on the field on Friday night when the Chiefs play the Seahawks, just a week after signing his franchise tender.
“I will play him some, just give him a couple of plays here and there, but I don’t think he’s ready to play a whole game or anything like that,” Crennel told reporters today.
Playing two pre-season games should improve the timing between Matt Cassel and Bowe.
Bowe signing his tender has a fantasy impact as well as he is normally going in the sixth or seventh round. As the team’s number one option at wide receiver, he has late round value.
In five seasons with Kansas City, Bowe has 4,927 receiving yards and 36 touchdowns.
