When the Kansas City Chiefs take the field for their game against the Tennessee Titans, a key piece of the offense will be back from injury.
Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be back on the field for the first time in three weeks.
Head coach Andy Reid revealed Mahomes will start under center for the Chiefs this weekend. It’s his first start since he suffered a dislocated kneecap during the team’s Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos on October 17.
Here’s the news from Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher.

Kansas City played well without Mahomes on the field. Backup quarterback Matt Moore and company lost a close game 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.
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.
Mahomes was the leader in the MVP race when he went down with the injury. Can he return to form over the final half of the season?
