Injury Rounds

Patrick Mahomes II | Right patella dislocation | Week 7 | 3-6 Weeks | Week 11+ Return | Out Week 8

Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap last Thursday night. The kneecap was returned to its position on the field and x-rays were negative. The good news continued through the weekend, as a follow-up MRI study reportedly showed minimal damage to the supporting ligaments of the kneecap.

The reassuring MRI finding is critical. It allows Mahomes a chance to rehab and delay any possible surgical repair until after the season. Pain, swelling, and stiffness may limit Mahomes rehab but reports on Sunday morning suggest the Chiefs and Mahomes now see his recovery as week to week.
