The NFL has re-instated WR Dwayne Bowe after the former Pro Bowl receiver served his one-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Bowe was arrested in November by police in Riverside, Missouri, for possession of marijuana. He pleaded guilty in April to lesser charges of littering and defective equipment. The marijuana charge was dismissed.
The passenger in Bowe’s car the night of the arrest told police the marijuana belonged to him and that Bowe did not know it was in the car.
The suspension officially came down on August 15, at which time Bowe issued the following statement:
“I am extremely sorry that I can’t be on the field for the first game of the 2014 season because I made an error in judgment… I take responsibility for my mistake, and it will not happen again. I hope that my teammates, coaches and Chiefs fans accept my sincere apology.
Since being drafted No. 23 overall in 2007, Bowe has 472 receptions, 6,401 receiving yards and 44 TDs. In 2010 Bowe was named to the Pro Bowl after leading the league in receiving TDs. That season Bowe also set a career high with 1,162 receiving yards and a 16.1 yards/reception average.
