This analysis from Dr. David Chao is consistent with what a source familiar with the situation tells Chiefs Digest. The Chiefs hope Patrick Mahomes can return in a three-week timeframe, assuming the MRI on Friday shows no other structural damage to the knee. But rest and rehab alone may not provide a long-term solution. Offseason surgery remains a possibility, and there's always a chance Mahomes can suffer another patella dislocation if and when he returns.
