Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network joined Good Morning Football early Friday morning to provide an update to Patron Mahomes in Kansas City. Mahomes dislocated his knee in Thursday night's game against the Denver Broncos.
REPORT: "These are the facts of what we know at the moment. He will later receive an MRI [Friday] to determine the ligament damage. See. You have seen it like everyone else. It seemed like a terrible situation on the pitch, however bad. Pretty soon there after the optimism came. I talked to several people involved in this situation. The current opinion is that Patrick Mahomes is expected to miss about three weeks, awaiting NMR results. If the MRI goes in and shows that there is severe damage to the ligament, it could obviously be more. Much more. Nobody knows for sure, but it was a telling response from a source on the night of know-how [Thursday] … it was, guys: "For the best as possible." Right there, it tells you a lot about where the Chiefs and those related to Patrick Mahomes are currently heading to NMR [Friday].
It sounds like the Chiefs' starting quarterback will (at least) miss games against the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings. The Bosses play the Tennessee Titans 24 days from Thursday, then they play the charges in Los Angeles seven days later, then it's their bye week.
The next Friday update (with NMR results) will be storytelling.
