Last Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs nearly defeated the Green Bay Packers without Patrick Mahomes. The star quarterback was inactive due to a gruesome knee injury that he suffered in Week 7.

Matt Moore filled in admirably for Mahomes, completing 24-of-36 pass attempts for 267 yards and two touchdowns. However, it wasn't enough for the Chiefs to pull off the win.

Next up for Kansas City is yet another showdown with a team from the NFC North. On Sunday, the Chiefs will host the Vikings in what should be another exciting contest.

While the Chiefs have stated before that they won't rush Mahomes back from his injury, it sounds like the reigning MVP is progressing well in his rehab.

Andy Reid told the media that Mahomes will practice today and do "a little bit more" than he did last week.

This doesn't mean he's on track to play this weekend, but it's an encouraging sign for the Texas Tech product.

Luckily for the Chiefs, the loss of Mahomes hasn't affected where they stand in the AFC West. The Broncos, Chargers and Raiders all remain at least two games back of them in the win column.

Kansas City will release Mahomes' official status for Wednesday's practice in the coming hours.
