Kansas City Chiefs fans will finally get a chance to see Brian Daboll's offense at full strength Friday night.

Dwayne Bowe is back.

According to Adam Teicher (@AdamTeicher) of the Kansas City Star, head coach Romeo Crennel confirmed that Bowe will participate in Friday's exhibition against the Seattle Seahawks.

Bowe has battled offseason conditioning issues in the past, but it appears that he did not let old habits resurface during his holdout. The wide receiver's first official team practice on Tuesday gave Coach Crennel enough reason to let the fan favorite take the field at Arrowhead Stadium just three days later. 


Bowe stated that he has been showing up to camp at 6:30 a.m. this week in an effort to make up for lost time.

“I’m coming in extra early in the morning, staying late after practice, in the meeting room with Matt (Cassel) to overload me, to get me into that playbook, to expedite (the process),” Bowe explained.

“I’m a professional and my job is to learn. I’m learning it pretty fast and we’ll see where it takes me.” (Josh Looney,

Although he will be used sparingly, seeing the familiar No. 82 return to the field will be a welcomed sight. 

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, Aug. 20 at 7:00 p.m. (CDT).
