Report: Bowe will start for Chiefs despite arrest
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was cited for driving 48 in a 35 mph zone and possession of marijuana during a traffic stop late Sunday.
The Kansas City Star
first reported details of the arrest and ESPN.com reported later Wednesday a Chiefs team source said Bowe will definitely play on Sunday.
The Chiefs opened as 9.5-point underdogs for Sunday night's game at Denver, but a few books were sitting as low as 8 by early Wednesday afternoon.
Bowe was driving a 2011 Audi A8 with two passengers. All three were removed from the vehicle while a K-9 search was conducted, alerting officers to "a black bag holding Bowe's wallet and two containers of what the officer suspected to be marijuana" the Star reported. One container held 3.8 grams of marijuana and the other 6.6 grams, according to the report.
Bowe has 33 receptions, top among the team's receivers but second to running back Jamaal Charles (47), for 369 yards and two touchdowns for the 9-0 Chiefs in 2013.
He was suspended four games in 2009 for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs.
Under the terms of the personal conduct policy, Bowe could be subject to fine and discipline. Players pleading guilty or convicted to possession of marijuana have been suspended one game in the past.
