Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will attempt to throw in practice less than one week after dislocating his knee in a Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos, head coach Andy Reid told reporters on Wednesday. 

Matt Moore is expected to start on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers and will take the "majority" of the team reps, according to Reid.

"He's been full steam ahead and that's how he does everything," Reid said, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

Moore replaced Mahomes in the second quarter and finished the 30–6 win with 10 of 19 passes completed for 117 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown to Tyreek Hill.

An MRI later showed that Mahomes suffered a dislocated knee and the Chiefs' hope was that the reigning MVP could return in three weeks, if not sooner.

Mahomes has thrown for 2,180 yards and 15 touchdowns this season.

The Chiefs and Packers will face off on Sunday night at 8:20 p.m.
