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.

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.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes injured his right knee on a QB sneak in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Broncos. Trainers appeared to pop the knee back into place on the field. Mahomes was able to walk off the field with trainers and headed back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we learn more. QB Matt Moore is in the game for Kansas City.

Update: Mahomes has been ruled out for the game.
