Really really disappointing. Not sure what else to say.

Of course it happens to our best guy.

Definitely worried a bit now. Hopefully his replacement will get a LOT of playing time tomorrow. I also see a lot of short passes and screens coming in the first four games.

He released this statement. But i wonder what it really was that he took...

Quote:
I'm extremely sorry that I failed to check with the NFL, NFLPA or Chiefs medical team before I took a medication that requires a therapeutic use exemption. The rules are strict and without a therapeutic use exemption, the consequence is a four-game suspension...

It is not a mistake I will ever make again.

We will be active on the waiver wire for sure.

On the bright side we can Cut Dbow now, save money instantly, use that money to sign houston, Alex and find a new RT.

I was impressed with his time at the end of last season at LT. I was hoping that they would keep him there and hold off moving fisher there until later.

It'd solve me having to hear complaining about Bowe daily.


Other than that, nothing.




This could be Bowe ' s last year, but cutting him and signing Houston is just going to put us in this exact position in 3 years.

Bowe is the only WR threat we have. Houston is good while having others around him.

Well, that explains why they moved Jeff Allen to RT recently - and played some other guys there as well. Good news for McKee and/or Harris (whom I consider the 3rd OT anyways).

Good news is we can survive this with a vet LT and maybe changing the play calling a little til Stephenson gets back...I think he is a difference maker.

For a small bit of optimism for this thread, Ryan Harris is currently our top graded offensive lineman through preseason so far, per PFF.

The cap problem that isn't really a problem considering we already have a full roster?

It's not like there's magically going to be a RT out there worth 7 or 8 mil. Cutting Bowe doesn't make sense at this point until the season's end. Same with Hali.
