Chiefs Dwayne Bowe Carted Off Field With Leg Injury Tuesday

Continuing what has been a rash of injury scares around the AFC West and the NFL as 2013 Training Camp picks up, Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe has been carted off the field at a training camp practice.

FanSided blog Arrowhead Addict was quick to come out with one of the first reports on Bowe’s status.

Jacobs then followed up and said Bowe simply had a severe cramp.

With Bowe failing his physical it remains to be said that the cramp may stem either from being out of shape or simply being sick depending on if you believe Bowe failed his physical before Chiefs camp due to a Non-Football Illness.

Bowe has spent the offseason talking his game up and bragging about how he can lead the NFL in catches this season after earning a nice payday in Kansas City, making it unlikely that a motivated Bowe would show up out of shape and not ready to produce.

Still it will go down as a scare for Kansas City fans as they feel that they can claim their team has an outside shot of being the second best team in the AFC West this season. Bringing in Alex Smith at quarterback and hiring Andy Reid has spirits high at Chiefs camp, but the one thing they can’t do is lose Bowe who despite how Raider fans may feel about him, is a very talented receiver and is the best non Jamaal Charles threat Kansas City has on offense.

With Andy Reid’s famous love for throwing the football around the park each Sunday, Bowe figures to be a huge part of Reid’s vision in Kansas City. Chiefs fans will be hoping that those early reports of Bowe just cramping up hold true as a scary moment unfolded this morning.
