Most Recent Shark Bites

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday's game against the Titans. He does come with elevated risk of re-dislocating that knee cap, but Mahomes is right back to high-end QB1 status.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid refused to commit to QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) returning for Sunday's game against the Titans. “See how he handles practice,” Reid said Wednesday. “We’ll monitor it... that’s the answer for it right now... that’s what’s real.” We're tentatively expecting Mahomes to get the green light for Week 10, but fantasy owners should still have a backup plan in place.

Update: Mahomes was listed as a full participant on Wednesday -- confirmation that he's on track to play this weekend.

The Chiefs get DT Chris Jones back from a groin injury for today's game against the Vikings. He had missed the past 3 games. DE Frank Clark (neck) and CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) are inactive once again, though.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Vikings. It sounds like he has a realistic chance to play next week. QB Matt Moore gets another start today.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is not expected to play against the Vikings today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Although Mahomes is seemingly recovering quicker than expected, he was always a long shot for this one. A Week 10 return looks doable. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress this coming week. QB Matt Moore gets another start vs. Minnesota today.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (neck), CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) and DT Chris Jones (groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Jones put in full practices Thursday and Friday and seems likely to return after missing the past 3 games. Clark made only a limited Friday practice. Fuller practiced on a limited basis all week and should also be ready. We'll check the status on each guy Sunday morning.

The Seahawks have claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers. It's an interesting landing spot, to say the least. We'll see when Gordon is healthy enough and comfortable enough in Seattle's offense to play, but he's worth a stash in deeper fantasy leagues.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. It's an upgrade over last week, when Mahomes was ruled out on Friday. He reportedly took 2nd-team reps in practice all week, though, so we're still expecting QB Matt Moore to get the start vs. Minnesota. A Week 10 return looks realistic for Mahomes.

The Patriots are releasing WR Josh Gordon from IR, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We'll see where he lands and then when he's able to return from his knee injury. Gordon is worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues but isn't a great bet to re-emerge as a bankable fantasy asset down the stretch.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) remained limited in Wednesday's practice, like he was all last week. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that Mahomes has an "outside chance" to return for this weekend's game against the Vikings, but a Week 10 return is more likely. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has an "outside chance" to play against the Vikings next week and a "very realistic shot" to return for Week 10, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes got back on the practice field this week and is healing faster than expected, per Rapoport, because his knee ligaments are "naturally loose" and weren't torn when his knee cap dislocated. So the guy truly is a freak of nature. We'll continue to monitor Mahomes' rehab.

The Chiefs have ruled DT Chris Jones (groin), DE Frank Clark (neck) and CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) out for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is out for Sunday night's game against the Packers. He got on the practice field this week but never had a shot to play this weekend. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes that Mahomes has a chance to return for Week 10. It'll be Matt Moore under center for Kansas City on Sunday. He's in play in 2-QB leagues.

The Patriots have placed WR Josh Gordon on IR with 2 bone bruises to his knee. The injuries are reportedly minor, though, and New England plans to release Gordon as soon as he's healthy. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo hears that could happen "soon," which would free up Gordon to sign elsewhere. With his status in limbo, he might be worth holding on to in fantasy leagues with deeper benches. But he's also droppable if you need immediate help. The Patriots, meanwhile, will move forward with Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and the newly acquired Mohamed Sanu as their top 3 WRs. They're also expected to get 1st-round rookie WR N'Keal Harry back in Week 9.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) will practice on Wednesday, HC Andy Reid said. QB Matt Moore will get the "majority" of the reps, Reid added. Although Mahomes hasn't officially been ruled out, it'll be Moore under center on Sunday night vs. the Packers. But it's surprising and encouraging that Mahomes is already back on the practice field. Perhaps he's back sooner than 3 weeks from now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) could return for the Week 11 game against the Chargers in Mexico City. Schefter adds, though, that the team will "exercise extreme caution" with its star QB. Kansas City has a Week 12 bye, so we still won't be surprised if Mahomes is held out until Week 13. QB Matt Moore will start at least the next 3 games vs. the Packers, Vikings and Titans.

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (knee, ankle) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Jets after missing practice all week. WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) put in a limited week of practice and is listed as questionable. The Monday night kickoff obviously makes Dorsett tough to use in fantasy lineups. Jakobi Meyers will either serve as New England's #2 or #3 WR, depending on Dorsett's status.

The MRI on Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' injured knee revealed no "significant additional damage" beyond the dislocated knee cap, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes will get a 2nd opinion, but the Chiefs' current "plan" is to get their QB back this season "after a brief absence," Rapoport adds. This is just about the best news we could have gotten. We're still expecting Mahomes to miss at least 3 weeks -- and the Chiefs could opt to hold him out through their Week 12 bye. But Mahomes should stay stashed on fantasy rosters. QB Matt Moore is next up on Kansas City's depth chart.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (patella) is expected to miss "at least" 3 weeks. Friday's MRI will determine whether he needs season-ending surgery, but there's "some real optimism" that Mahomes will be able to return this season, per Rapoport. This is jibes with what we heard from Dr. David Chao on Thursday night. We should have a better idea of Mahomes' outlook by Friday night.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has been diagnosed with a dislocated patella (knee cap), according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Mahomes will undergo an MRI to check for ligament damage. Former NFL head team Dr. David Chao says that Mahomes will eventually need surgery, which will sideline him for 6 to 9 months. It's possible, though, for Mahomes to return in 4+ weeks and play through the injury. We'll continue to update this situation as we learn more.
