Chiefs' Bowe questionable for Steelers with flu


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe missed his third straight day of practice with the flu Friday and is questionable for Sunday's pivotal game at Pittsburgh.

The Chiefs (8-6) would not be eliminated from the playoff race with a loss to the Steelers, but they would need a lot of help. Kansas City plays San Diego in the final week of the season.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Friday he thinks Bowe will be able to play. If he's unable to go, Frankie Hammond Jr. and Jason Avant will likely be called upon to cover Bowe's production.

Linebacker Tamba Hali also did not practice Friday, though Reid said that was mostly to rest his sore knee. Reid expects Hali to be available for the game.
