Even though he took the majority of snaps during practice this week, he is scheduled to see a specialist at the end of the season to determine if he'll need to undergo surgery. Our View: This could be a key to the game because Mahomes is at his most dangerous on the move and he likes to make lots of off platform throws that rely on precision.
