Indications were that Mahomes was likely to return in Week 10, as he managed to practice in full this week.
Mahomes dislocated his kneecap a few weeks ago in a game against the Broncos, but returned to practice in a limited fashion soon after. In total, Mahomes will miss just two games with this injury.
Mahomes, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2016. The Chiefs traded first and third-round picks in 2017 to go along with another first-round pick in 2018 for the right to draft Mahomes.
Mahomes is currently in the third year of his four-year, $16.4 million contract and set to make base salaries of $645,000 and $735,000 over the final two years of the agreement.
The Chiefs have a fifth-year option they can pick up on Mahomes to ensure he’s under contract through 2021 and from there they could always franchise him if need be.
In 2019, Mahomes had appeared in seven games for the Chiefs and completed 65.1 percent of his passes for 2,180 to go along with 15 touchdowns and one interception. He has also rushed for 82 yards.
