The Kansas City Chiefs learned on Friday that they will be without wide receiver Dwayne Bowe for the first game of the 2014 season as he serves out a one game suspension for an arrest that produced a drug possession charge last year.
Bowe was arrested for speeding last year when it was discovered he was in the possession of marijuana, which is where this suspension from the league is coming from.
In response to news about his one game ban to start the 2014 season, Bowe released a statement on his suspension and apologized to not only his teammates and coaches, but to Chiefs fans as well for his mistake.
“I am extremely sorry that I cannot be on the field for the first game of the 2014 season because I made an error in judgement. I take responsibility for my mistake and it will not happen again. I hope that my teammates, coaches and Chiefs fans accept my sincere apology. I will be supporting my teammates week one, and I cannot wait to get back on the field to help us win week two and beyond as we work towards our goal of winning the Super Bowl.”
The Chiefs need Bowe to have a breakout year again this season, as he’s not yet lived up to the big contract that was handed to him and he needs to adjust his game. That’s a lot easier said than done and his 2014 rebound campaign is already off to a less than spectacular start.
