The reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes will return to action for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
#Chiefs coach Andy Reid announced at his press conference that QB Patrick Mahomes will start on Sunday vs. the #Titans, as expected. So he’ll miss just two games with a dislocated kneecap. Totally normal.

Mahomes dislocated his kneecap in the second quarter of the Chiefs 30-6 Thursday Night Football win over the Denver Broncos on October 17. Backup quarterback Matt Moore took over and helped lead the Chiefs to victory. Many feared that Mahomes would miss a significant amount of time but he is back, healthy and ready to lead the Chiefs going forward.
Kansas City went 1-1 in the two games that Mahomes missed losing a close one to the Green Bay Packers and beating the Minnesota Vikings on a Harrison Butker field goal. Although the Chiefs offense was not stagnant in the two games without Mahomes, the reigning NFL offensive player of the year will definitely bring back a spark to the teams offense.
This season Mahomes has thrown for 2180 yards, 15 touchdowns, and just 1 interception. In his career he has thrown for 7561 yards, 65 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions.
The Chiefs sit atop a crowded AFC West at 6-3. They will play two more games before their bye week and have three divisional games in their last 5 games.
