Fans realized how serious the injury could be after the Colts sacked Mahomes in Week 5.

The Kansas City Chiefs are still gathering information about the extent of Patrick Mahomes' knee injury, and will not yet commit to a timetable for the return of the superstar quarterback.

As Schefter notes, "the Chiefs are expected to exercise extreme caution with Mahomes, and the time off will allow him to rest his knee and high ankle sprain". Now that the dust has settled on the most extreme predictions of all, it looks like the Chiefs might just stick with all internal options, which means Kyle Shurmur will get a real chance to make the active roster.

The undefeated San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl LIV futures also improved from +1,300 to +1,100 on Mahomes' injury.

It's unclear whether any services will take place before Thursday night's game between the Chiefs and the Denver Broncos.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid indicated Friday that Henne is progressing in the rehabilitation process but hasn't started throwing yet. As players from both teams gathered to pat him on the back, Mahomes limped off the field and to the locker room with little assistance.

Moore, 35, came on for Mahomes on Thursday and led the Chiefs to a 30-6 win, completing 10 of 19 passes for 117 yards and a TD. "Then it's hard to be a relief pitcher". There's a certain way to prep for that and he understands that. "The onerous thing is if the fellow is accessible in, the backup, and likewise you can bear got to alternate your entire offense". He added follow-up evaluations will be important in determining when Mahomes can return to action for the Chiefs. Only Moore is healthy and able to play against the Packers in a game that would really help the Chiefs toward a playoff spot.
