NFL.com's Ian Rapoport and Albert Breer reported Monday that the Kansas City Chiefs' star wide receiver has broken ribs and likely will be moved to season-ending injured reserve, according to a source who has spoken to the player.
The next question becomes if Bowe's days with the Chiefs are over. He played under the franchise tag this season -- after holding out through the preseason -- and it's unclear if either side is interested in a contract that keeps Bowe in Kansas City.
Bowe has shown in the past that he can be a top playmaker in a good situation. He's sure to attract interest on the free-agent market for a team that's hungry for a No. 1-type receiver, but we'd be surprised if his relationship with the Chiefs hasn't run its course.
