Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will start for Kansas City against the Titans
The Kansas City Chiefs are set to take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 10 and they are going to be getting a major reinforcement. Patrick Mahomes is set to start for the first time in 24 days after suffering a dislocated kneecap. He missed some time, but Matt Moore was able to go 1-1 in his two starts.
According to a report from James Palmer of the NFL Network, Mahomes is set to make his return this week.

Mahomes was having another MVP-caliber season before going down with the injury. In the seven games he was able to play in before the knee injury, he had completed 65.1 percent of his pass attempts for 2,180 yards, 15 touchdowns, and just one interception. He had also picked up 82 yards on the ground.
Kansas City will now begin their push towards the playoffs. At 6-3, they are still one of the top contenders in the AFC and are finally getting back to full health.
Andy Reid’s football team has faced quite a few issues this season. From health issues for Tyreek Hill to defensive playmakers like Chris Jones, the Chiefs have not had a lot of luck on the injury front. Now, however, it appears that they are recovering in time to make a big-time push.
All of that being said, the Titans cannot be too happy about this news. Facing Mahomes is never an easy task and he will be chomping at the bit to put up another huge game. Kansas City should be able to find a way to head into Nashville and come away with a win.
