Dwayne Bowe injury update: Fantasy status safe despite neck, back injury

Stacy Revere

Dwayne Bowe is expected to play Sunday when the Chiefs play the Broncos, despite neck and back injuries. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dwayne Bowe is expected to play Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Denver Broncos, despite being listed on the Chiefs' injury report with neck and back injuries. Bowe was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, but was able to practice fully Thursday and Friday.

Bowe has yet to miss a start this season, though he missed most of last week's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. On the year, he has 49 receptions for 626 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Bowe is a safe starting option if you need him, though playing within a putrid Chiefs offense makes him a very risky starting fantasy option. He has managed to remain a relatively productive receiver, but his upside is limited with Brady Quinn set to take over as the Chiefs' starting quarterback.
