Coach Todd Haley said that Dwayne Bowe, who reported to the team’s offseason conditioning program last spring about 30 pounds over his target weight, maintained his fitness during his four weeks away from Chiefs headquarters. Haley said he spoke with Bowe before the suspension but the team couldn’t be in contact with him during his punishment.
“Dwayne looked like he did a good job while he was away keeping himself in condition,” Haley said. “Really would have liked to have seen where he would have been had he been here the last four weeks because he was making so much progress leading up to the suspension.
“It was really important that Dwayne worked real hard while he was away. That sometimes is hard to do when you’re on your own and you’re not able to practice football. But Dwayne was a breath of fresh air out there.”
