RIVERSIDE, Mo. (AP) A municipal court hearing for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe on speeding and marijuana possession citations has been rescheduled.

Bowe's lawyers, Kevin E.J. Regan, said through legal assistant Jennifer Purvis that the hearing has been moved from Wednesday to Jan. 22. Purvis says the office doesn't plan to comment further.

Police in the Kansas City suburb of Riverside said Bowe was driving about 48 mph in a 35-mph zone when he was stopped Nov. 10. Police said an officer smelled "a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle" and found two containers holding what the officer suspected was marijuana.

Bowe previously apologized in a statement "for the distraction." Chiefs coach Andy Reid has said he intends to let the legal situation run its course.
