RIVERSIDE, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested outside Kansas City over the weekend on charges of speeding and possessing marijuana, throwing his status for a pivotal AFC West showdown against the Denver Broncos into question.

Bowe was pulled over for going about 48 mph in a 35 mph zone, police in suburban Riverside said Tuesday. Police said an officer smelled “a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle,” and asked Bowe and two passengers to get out of the car.

Police then used a dog to search for illegal substances and found a bag with Bowe’s wallet and two containers holding what the officer suspected was marijuana. One container held 6.6 grams of the substance, and the other had 3.8 grams, or about one-third of an ounce in all.

Bowe was cited for speeding and possession of a controlled substance, police said. He posted $750 bond and is scheduled to appear in Riverside court on Dec. 18.

Texans release Reed

Nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed has been released by the Houston Texans. The team made the move official Tuesday afternoon. Reed tweeted: “Thanks to the Texans! And the City of Htown!”

Reed missed the first two games after hip surgery and was recently relegated to a backup role. On Friday, he expressed his displeasure at not starting.

On Sunday, after Houston’s seventh straight loss, he publicly criticized the team and said they had been outplayed and outcoached.

The Texans also put running back Arian Foster on injured reserve as he struggles with a back injury.

Eagles sign Smith

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed veteran return specialist and wide receiver Brad Smith. A versatile player on offense, Smith averaged 25.7 yards on kickoff returns with four touchdowns during an eight-year career with the New York Jets and Bills.
