Report: Patrick Mahomes to miss at least three weeks with knee injury

Patrick Mahomes knee

Patrick Mahomes suffered a right knee injury during the Kansas City Chiefs’ 30-6 romp over the Denver Broncos on Thursday night and is expected to miss at least a few weeks.

Unconfirmed reports have said Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap. The Chiefs will not know the extent of the quarterback’s injury until he undergoes an MRI. For now, ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Mahomes is expected to miss at least three weeks.

Mahomes was 10/11 for 76 yards and a touchdown prior to his injury. The 24-year-old was NFL MVP last season after throwing for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns. He had thrown for 14 touchdowns and just one interception through six games this season.

Matt Moore is the team’s backup quarterback and went 10/19 for 117 yards and a touchdown while maintaining the lead over the Broncos. KC is now 5-2 and faces the Packers, Vikings and Titans over its next three games. They don’t have a bye until late November.
