Why the Chiefs decided to not discipline Dwayne Bowe

NBC on Yahoo Sports


Mike Florio talks about the Chiefs decision to not discipline WR Dwayne Bowe. Bowe was arrested for possession of marijuana, but the team believes Bowe's passenger was the reason for the arrest. Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed earlier reports that Bowe would play, and took it a step further when meeting with reporters.

“It is a legal matter and that’s the way we’ll handle it,” Reid said, via Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. “Let it run its course there. Dwayne will play, he’ll start.” If Bowe happened to be a backup safety and special teamer, or there was more certainty about the charges, there’s a chance the Chiefs could still have come up with a way to make a statement.

But in a game in which they’ll need every point they can find, it’s hardly a surprise they’ve chosen this path.
