As the Chiefs open training camp on Friday in St. Joseph, Mo., there's really only one question on everybody's mind: When is Dwayne Bowe going to show up? The Chiefs signed first-round pick Dontari Poe on Thursday, leaving only Bowe missing in action at Romeo Crennel's first camp as the team's head coach.

Who's here: Everyone but Bowe. RB Jamaal Charles, S Eric Berry and TE Tony Moeaki are expected to participate -- all three missed most of last season with knee injuries. Also returning from injury are S Kendrick Lewis and LB Brandon Siler. QB Matt Cassel is also in camp and healthy. Two new acquisitions in camp are expected to help Cassel return to his 2010 form: RT Eric Winston and RB Peyton Hillis.

Who's not: Bowe. The Chiefs put the franchise tag on Bowe this offseason and were unable to agree to a long-term contract by the July 16 deadline. That means that Bowe can either sign his tender, a one-year deal worth about $9.5 million, or not play. With Bowe absent, it's a big camp for second-year WR Jon Baldwin. Baldwin missed most of camp in 2011 and the first five games of the season with a thumb injury that occured during an altercation with former RB Thomas Jones. Baldwin will be featured at the No. 1 WR until Bowe shows. LT Branden Albert missed Friday morning's walk-through because of family issues, but he arrived in time for Friday afternoon's first official practice.
