A source told ESPN's Ed Werder that the three-week mark is important for Mahomes' recovery, because the chance he can reinjure himself is reduced to between 10 and 20 percent. "We'll try to increase them here a little bit and see how it works out".
"Just see how he works and how he handles it then we'll go from there", Reid said. Rick [Burkholder] and his crew have a good job of monitoring him.
"Patrick has been honest with [the Chiefs' training staff] and shot them straight", Reid said.
Obviously, Bayless tweeted that to get guys like me to react; and here I am.
Despite Mahomes' injury, the Chiefs are 6-3 this season and sit top of the AFC West.
Backup quarterback Matt Moore replaced Mahomes against the Broncos after his knee injury. The team went 1-1 to these games, losing to the Packers and beating the Vikings.
Mike Vrabel talked about the problem of defending Mahomes in his push convention right now, so the Titans will unquestionably be preparing as if he is going to be out there on Sunday.
Left tackle Eric Fisher, who hasn't played since the second game of the season after undergoing core muscle surgery, and defensive end Alex Okafor, who sat out last week with a sprained ankle, were the only players absent from Wednesday's practice.
Moore threw for 117 yards and a score in wrapping up the 30-6 rout of Denver, and he threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns while going toe-to-toe with Aaron Rodgers in a nip-and-tuck 31-24 loss to Green Bay.
