The Chiefs demoted WR Dwayne Bowe to third-team early in training camp because of what Coach Todd Haley believed was his often lackadaisical attitude.
Both situations have, at least to this point, resolved themselves to Haley’s satisfaction. Waters is having a strong camp and is clearly the Chiefs’ best offensive lineman.
“This is a player that has come in and done above and beyond what has been asked of him every day,” Haley said of Waters. “He can obviously play. He’s shown that. He got himself in very good condition, which I think he’s kind of seeing as an advantage.”
Meanwhile, Bowe returned to the starting lineup in practice Tuesday, joining Devard Darling as a starting wide receiver.
“That’s pretty obvious … that you’ve seen a progression from Dwayne that’s encouraging from the early days of camp to where he’s at now,” Haley said. “He’s made very good progress. Is he there? No. Does he need to make more plays? Yes.
