Report: Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be placed on injured reserve

The Chiefs have already said that wide receiver Dwayne Bowe @DwayneBowe82 won't play this Sunday against the Raiders, but what will he do for the rest of the season? According to, Bowe should make himself comfortable on the sidelines because he won't play again until 2013. PFT was told by a league source Monday that Bowe will be placed on season-ending injured reserve as a result of the broken ribs he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jon Baldwin @Jon__Baldwin and Terrance Copper will replace Bowe as the Chiefs' primary outside wide receivers, but they aren't worth a good, deep look in fanatasy leagues with 12 teams or less. Bowe's time in Kansas City is probably up since he is a free agent at the close of the season. He and his fantasy owners will want to forget his 2012 season, but if Bowe can get paired up with just a decent quarterback in an offense with a major need at wideout, he should return to being a fine WR2 at least.

Imagine Dwayne Bowe paired with Reggie Wayne in Indianapolis with a young, Great QB in Andrew Luck who really ONLY HAS 1 WR. That would be nice for everyone.
BUT... my guess is Dwayne Bowe returns home, to his birth-place of Miami, Florida to the Miami Dolphins and hook up with ANOTHER young QB in Tannihill, there is also a GREAT need for WR there with the departure of Marshall, so I FULLY expect to see Dwayne Bowe in a Miami Dolphins uniform in 2012, and bring himself back into Fantasy relevancy once again.
