Chiefs’ Andy Reid not worried about Patrick Mahomes logging full practice before return
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has missed each of the last two weeks while he recovers from a dislocated knee cap, but there seems to be a chance he could play against the Tennessee Titans next Sunday.
As for just how much Mahomes will need to do in practice before getting back on the field? Chiefs head coach Andy Reid says that it won’t be important for Mahomes to get in a full session, stating that Mahomes knows the players and the system, according to Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star.
Of course, knowing the system is not going to be the problem for Mahomes; it’s whether or not he can physically play.
Mahomes suffered his injury during the first half of Kansas City’s Thursday night Week 7 win over the Denver Broncos.
The reigning MVP was initially expected to be sidelined for a minimum of three weeks, but after his MRI came back clean, there was some speculation that he could potentially play the following week against the Green Bay Packers, especially after Mahomes partially participated in practice in the week leading up to the game.
However, Mahomes ended up missing that contest, which ended up being a 31-24 home loss. He was also shelved against the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday, although Matt Moore led the Chiefs to a pivotal road win.
In seven games this season, Mahomes has thrown for 2,180 yards, 15 touchdowns and one interception while completing 65.1 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 113.1.
Kansas City is 6-3 on the year.
