Mahomes expected to miss "at least" 3 weeks

Which players can you turn to if you have Mahomes or any other notable Chiefs on your roster?

Kansas City Star Quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a scary-looking knee injury against the Denver Broncos in week 7, but he is said to be able to return later in the 2019 season.

When Mahomes returns he will likely be wearing a knee brace. He has 2,104 passing yards, 14 touchdown passes and only one interception this season.

As Mahomes starts his rehab, Borgmann said the team's medical staff likely will evaluate his recovery on at least a daily basis. Players from both teams came by to offer encouragement. Under that scenario, Mahomes would make his return in Week 13 during a December 1 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Mahomes remained on the ground after the play with an apparent knee injury. While it might seem implausible for the Raiders, Chargers, or Broncos to seriously challenge the Chiefs for the division winner's automatic playoff spot, that's the reality of a post-Mahomes world.

Borgmann added that the combination of playing quarterback and the injury happening to Mahomes' right leg will be a key point of evaluation during the process.

After that, the team has a bye week before starting a five-game sprint to the end of the season with a home game against the Oakland Raiders on December 1.

Drew Brees, Nick Foles, Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton and now Patrick Mahomes have all suffered significant injuries - leaving backup quarterbacks to fill the void. The quarterback position is a different story though as you need an elite QB to win a Super Bowl.

The Patriots already have a two-game lead on the Chiefs in the AFC thanks to Kansas City's back-to-back home losses in Weeks 5-6 to the Colts and Texans.
