Yard Barker- The Kansas City Chiefs held their collective breath when superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes went down with an dislocated kneecap in a 30-6 victory over the Denver Broncos last Thursday night, but by all accounts, they dodged a serious bullet.
Not only did Mahomes’ injury turn out to be less severe than many initially expected, but he immediately began rehab (primarily in pools) and on Wednesday morning, returned to practice on a limited basis.
While meeting with the Kansas City media, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that in addition to some throwing on the side, Mahomes would likely get in on individual drills, although fellow quarterback Matt Moore was slated to take the bulk of the reps in preparation for a game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
Although Reid didn’t rule Mahomes out for the team’s Week 8 game, it seems like a long-shot for the quarterback to get back onto the field that quickly. Rather, it’s likely the Chiefs hold him out for another week and then reevaluate their options in Week 9.
