Patrick Mahomes Receives 'Best-Case Scenario' Diagnosis On Knee

Oct 18, 2019 3:25 PM

Patrick Mahomes received a "best-case scenario" diagnosis after dislocating his right kneecap.

The MRI Mahomes underwent showed no damage beyond the dislocation.

The Kansas City Chiefs are working through second opinions. 

Mahomes suffered the injury during a quarterback sneak on fourth down. As medical staff attended to him on the field, it appeared Mahomes' knee was straightened and popped back into place.

Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports Mahomes could be back by Week 11, which is in one month.

Patrick Mahomes Suffers Right Knee Injury

Oct 17, 2019 9:31 PM

Patrick Mahomes suffered what appeared to be a serious right knee injury during the first half of the Kansas City Chiefs' Week 7 game at the Denver Broncos. Mahomes was able to walk off the field on his own power.

Dr. Mark Adickes believed it was a patella (knee cap) dislocation. The treatment could be for Mahomes to sit out for a weeks, but he could also have season-ending surgery with an MRI determining the course of action.

The early reports indicate Mahomes does not have a fracture.

Mahomes won the NFL MVP in 2018.

Travis Kelce Regrets Shoving Offensive Coordinator

Oct 10, 2019 9:18 AM

Travis Kelce says he regrets shoving offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on the sideline during a moment of frustration in Sunday night's loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

"We're good," the Kansas City Chiefs tight end said. "Me and Coach Bieniemy have a very close relationship. I love him. He's helped me out tremendously as a person, as a professional and I'm sure he'll keep doing that throughout the rest of my career. ... I love the guy. That will never change. I appreciate him being on my tail to get me going.

"As far as what happened on the sideline, sometimes in football you get a little heated with your brothers or your coaches."

Kelce shoved Bieniemy on the sideline after he dropped a difficult but catchable pass early in the game. The two had to separated.

"He's like a father figure, in terms of being there for me on the field,'' Kelce said. "We're wired a little bit the same when it comes to our competitive edge. ... It's something immediately I regretted and I just wanted to make it good and let him know that, 'You know what? I'm ready to rock and roll for you.'"
