Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes (knee) has "a chance" to play in Week 9

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a chance to play against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9 according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

What It Means:

Mahomes appears to be a legitimate game-time decision for Kansas City in Week 9. The expectation is still that he sits, but this report is an excellent sign for his outlook for Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. Mahomes' recovery has been ahead of schedule since day 1 and it appears he will end up beating even the most optimistic timetables for his return.

Assuming a full return in Week 10, our models project Mahomes for 167 completions for 2092 yards, 15.67 touchdowns, and 5.2 interceptions over the rest of the season. He is the QB12 in our rest of season rankings with a Week 12 bye still on his schedule.
