The Kansas City Chiefs have been without star quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the past two games. Backup quarterback Matt Moore and company lost to the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago before taking down the Minnesota Vikings last weekend.
A 1-1 record in games against two of the NFC’s toughest teams with a backup quarterback is exactly what the Chiefs needed.
Mahomes suffered a dislocated kneecap and has been nursing the injury for two weeks.
However, after practicing in full capacity this week, it looks like Mahomes will be back on the field this weekend.
The Chiefs released their injury report on Thursday afternoon and revealed Mahomes practiced in full.

It’s great news for the Chiefs, who should welcome back their MVP quarterback on Sunday afternoon.
The Chiefs could also get Frank Clark, Kendall Fuller and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif back this weekend.
Andy Reid’s team currently sits in first place in the AFC West and won’t relinquish that lead any time soon with Mahomes back under center.
After a full practice designation over the past two days, it would be surprising not to see Mahomes on the field this weekend.
Kansas City and Tennessee kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on CBS.
