Chiefs Patrick Mahomes out a minimum of 3 weeks, pending MRI

-

Often in life even the very best outcome isn’t always quite, but it’s still better than the option.

This is where the Kansas City Chiefs stand after Patrick Mahomes exited Thursday night’s blowout win over the Denver Broncos with a knee injury sustained on a fourth-down QB sneak. Today’s MRI will expose for how long the AFC West leaders will be without the 2018 NFL MVP. Even the most favorable outcomes will likely have him out till mid-November.

NFL Network Expert Ian Rapoport reported that Mahomes is expected to be out at least three weeks with a dislocated kneecap, per sources informed of the scenario.

The MRI will reveal whether that timeline will be longer, including requiring season-ending surgical treatment.

Rapoport included that despite the fact that he stands to miss games, there is some genuine optimism from those involved that he can play through the condition after missing just 3 games.

Some of that positivity originates from Mahomes himself:

Amazing group win! Love my bros! Thank you for all the prayers! Everything looking excellent so far! #GodisGood #ChiefsKingdom

If the best-case scenario certainly comes to fruition, Mahomes would miss out on games against the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. With a Week 12 bye, depending on how his knee looks and where the Chiefs stand at that time, it’s possible K.C. holds him out of the Chargers game in Week 11 also to offer him two more weeks before returning in December for the stretch run.

For a minimum of the next 3 weeks, nevertheless, it appears it will be Matt Moore running the show in K.C. against 3 stellar defenses as the Chiefs attempt to remain atop the AFC West while their MVP is on the shelf.
