Dwayne Bowe injury: Chiefs WR will likely start despite groin pull

Jamie Squire

The Chiefs top wide receiver is likely to play in Kansas City's Week 8 matchup against the Browns.

The Chiefs will have wide receiver Dwayne Bowe in the Week 8 game against the Browns. The Pro Bowl wide receiver is listed as questionable with a groin injury, but is likely to start against Cleveland barring a setback, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

While Bowe has not been as active of a target as he has in past years, he is still a big part of the Chiefs offense. Through seven games, Bowe has collected 25 receptions for 295 yards and two touchdowns. The undefeated Chiefs are strong defensively, but having as many weapons as possible on offense is a plus.

Bowe's availability will likely have a major impact on Sunday's game against Cleveland. He has appeared and started in every game so far this season. Dexter McCluster is listed as Bowe's direct backup on the Chiefs depth chart.

The Chiefs will host the Browns at 1 p.m. ET Sunday on CBS.
