Patrick Mahomes II | Right patella dislocation | Week 7 | 3-6 Weeks | Week 9+ Return | Doubtful Week 9
Mahomes' recovery from a patellar dislocation is progressing blindly quickly. Mahomes was cleared to participate in light individual drills just seven days after his injury and the Chiefs didn't officially rule him out of last week's game until Friday evening.
The Chiefs and Mahomes, after seeking multiple opinions to confirm that an MRI study showed only minimal damage to the ligament stabilizing his kneecap, are clearly comfortable accelerating this rehab. Even the best-case scenario seemed to be a four-week recovery initially. But there were reports Sunday that Mahomes is likely to push to play this week.
