KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs are hopeful that Patrick Mahomes will be able to play next week against Minnesota, especially having practiced on a limited basis just days after dislocating his kneecap.
Hope is not lost if the reigning league MVP misses a second consecutive game.
Fill-in quarterback Matt Moore and the Kansas City defense showed in a 31-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night that they can keep the Chiefs season afloat until their biggest star makes his return to the field. Moore threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns without an interception while Kansas Citys defense pressured Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers throughout the night.
