Bowden was drafted 80th by Las Vegas Raiders in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He would be traded to Miami just one week before the regular season kicked off, causing him to be inactive for Week 1 in order to catch up to speed. As we know, Bowden is a fast learner and has been able to catch up in time for the Dolphins’ Week 2 matchup against the Bills.
Earlier in the week, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said they might work a couple of packages for Bowden to get the rookie some reps.
However, prior to kickoff, Bowden is back fielding kickoffs, which seems like a recipe to success to me.

Bowden and the Dolphins look to get their first win against the Buffalo Bills this afternoon at 1:00 pm.
Kentucky’s other 2020 draft pick, Logan Stenberg, is also active for the Lions today. He will be making his NFL debut against the Green Bay Packers this afternoon at 1:00 pm ET as the Lions look to get to 1-1 after a crushing loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 1.
Come see about it.
