Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid says wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will play Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

This despite being arrested Sunday night for possession of marijuana and speeding.
Bowe issued a statement today apologizing to the Hunt family, Coach Reid, his teammates and the fans for the distraction he's caused.

Bowe's lawyer says he's 100 percent innocent.

Reid said that he'll let the legal process run its course before making any kind of suspension.  "There are rules and regulations put in place.  And we'll abide by the rules and regulations and make sure we take all the information in as it goes through the process.  That's where we're going with this.  That's the facts and all I got for you."
