Patrick Mahomes has missed the Kansas City Chiefs’ last two games, but the MVP quarterback is expected to return on Sunday afternoon.
The star quarterback has been recovering from a dislocated kneecap injury, suffered in the Oct. 17 win over the Denver Broncos.
The Chiefs have fared OK without their star QB, but the team’s ceiling is obviously quite limited without the MVP QB on the field.
Mahomes appears to be ready to go.
The Chiefs’ star quarterback tweeted the following on Friday night:

Mahomes confirmed on Friday that he’s planning to play on Sunday.
“I’m in a good spot,” Mahomes said after practice on Friday. “I’m ready to get out there.”
The Chiefs confirmed the news, too.

Mahomes is pumped to be back.
“I knew I had a chance once I talked to those doctors and they said as long as I was functioning well, moving well, I could play this week,” Mahomes said. “Coach [Andy] Reid still wanted me to take it day by day. I went out here in practice and took the reps and I haven’t had any pain or any setbacks, and so as long as we keep going with that I’m glad to be back out there.”
The Chiefs and the Titans are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.
