Patrick Mahomes said he could have suited up for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Green Bay Packers on "Sunday Night Football" if it was a playoff game, just 10 days after the Chiefs quarterback suffered a dislocated kneecap that was expected to sideline him several weeks. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid won't rush Mahomes back to the field, even if he's ready to return.
Mahomes is expected to practice this week after being limited last week. He's apparently expected to return Week 10 against the Titans. The initial plan was to return Week 11, but the Chiefs also have a bye Week 12. Mahomes wants to play this week against the Vikings but the team will have the final say.
