KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and guard Brian Waters, two of Kansas City’s three Pro Bowlers, missed practice Wednesday.
Coach Todd Haley said both were out because of illness. He declined to say whether both will be ready for Sunday’s home playoff game against Baltimore. He said simply that they were unable to practice.
The Chiefs also signed free agent wide receiver Kevin Curtis, who has played in 81 games with Miami, Philadelphia and St. Louis.
Last month, Haley used the word illness to explain quarterback Matt Cassel’s absence from practice. The Chiefs announced later that Cassel had undergone an emergency appendectomy that wound up sidelining him for a game.
