ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid revealed a finger injury to wide receiver Dwayne Bowe that could explain why Bowe has dropped a lot of passes during camp.

"His finger is shot," Reid said Thursday. "It's been thrown out of place about 15 times, and he's not catching the ball. But he's getting his work done. You can practice with that type of thing."

Bowe has missed no practice time at training camp at Missouri Western State University. He played in last week's preseason opener against Cincinnati, catching one pass for 10 yards.

Reid didn't list Bowe as among the injured players who won't participate in Sunday night's preseason game against the Panthers in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Bowe had a particularly tough practice Wednesday. He caught the first pass that came his way but only after juggling it. He then dropped two passes and deflected another that went for an interception.
