Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe left yesterday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a neck injury, reports the Associated Press.
Bowe sustained the injury when he landed hard on the turf after leaping to make a catch. He was checked by trainers on the sidelines, hit the locker room for further evaluation and ultimately returned to the bench without his helmet.
Kansas City was already playing without number two wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin, who injured his head and neck during the team’s last game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Steve Breaston replaced Baldwin in the starting lineup, while Terrance Copper came in for Bowe following his injury.
Bowe did not catch a pass prior to his injury. Entering the game he had 626 yards with three touchdowns on 49 receptions.
