After Dwayne Bowe’s first session with the media on Monday, he said it was up to the coaching staff to determine if he would see action this Friday when the Chiefs play Seattle. Following Tuesday’s practice, Bowe did enough on the field to convince Romeo Crennel that he can play in the preseason.
Crennel hinted yesterday that the team might work in a handful of scripted plays for Bowe as he continues to digest offensive coordinator Brian Daboll’s new playbook. Bowe says he’s been arriving at the team facility by 6:30 a.m. each day this week to put in extra time learning the new offensive terminology.
“Coach says he thinks I’m ready from what he’s looked at, so I’m going to go play until he tells me not too,” Bowe said. “The toughest part has just been getting acclimated to some of the new guys and new offensive words, but it’s been coming on pretty smooth. I want to continue things where I left off – being dominant catching the football and finishing blocks downfield.”
