Wednesday night tailgate

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

Seemed like only a few days ago the Chiefs didn;t have enough quarterbacks on the active roster. Now it seems like we don’t know what to do with all of them!

Matt Moore (and others) spoke to the media on Wednesday Chad Henne was back at practice Wednesday — even though he’s still on IR. We explained how that works Patrick Mahomes was back on the practice field on Wednesday, too

Let’s see what you think:

Have a great evening! And be kind to each...

Chiefs designate QB Chad Henne for return from IR, could be backup Sunday

Per a team announcement, the Chiefs have designated quarterback Chad Henne for return from injured reserve. The news does not come as much of a surprise. Henne, who suffered a broken ankle in the preseason, was reportedly nearing a return to the field. Whether Henne will actually see game action may be more likely than previously expected. Henne was slated as the team’s backup quarterback, behind Patrick Mahomes, before the season, but when he suffered a broken ankle, the they shifted...

Chad Henne is back at practice: what it means for him and the Chiefs

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The veteran backup will be back on the active roster soon

On Wednesday afternoon, Kansas City Chiefs backup quarterback Chad Henne was back at practice.

As you’ll remember, Henne injured his ankle (what is it with the Chiefs and ankle injuries this year, anyway?) during the preseason. The injury was going to require surgical repair, so the Chiefs kept him on the roster through the preseason’s final cutdown and then immediately placed him on injured...

Patrick Mahomes back at practice, Chiefs haven't ruled him out for Sunday night

It was less than a week ago that Patrick Mahomes suffered a dislocated knee in a game against the Denver Broncos. On Wednesday, the Chiefs quarterback was back at practice. Coach Andy Reid also didn’t rule out Mahomes playing Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers. The timetable for Mahomes to return was initially set at three weeks after an MRI revealed there was no additional significant damage done to the knee. The fact that he’s back at practice so soon is unbelievable, and it...

The first 20 minutes of practice are open to the media.

Well, this was hard to believe.

Just six days removed from his right patellar (kneecap) dislocation, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was back on the practice field on Wednesday afternoon. Mahomes was fourth in the quarterback line behind Matt Moore, Kyle Shurmur and Chad Henne. Henne is not eligible to return from injured reserve until Week 9.

Ok, so here is...

Less than a week after injuring his knee, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes returns to practice

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has returned to practice for the Chiefs, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. This comes just six days after Mahomes left Kansas City’s Thursday night game with a dislocated kneecap. As one of the most transcendent players in the NFL since becoming the Chiefs starter in 2018, Mahomes’ status has massive implications for the AFC playoff picture. Chiefs coach Andy Reid revealed that backup quarterback Matt Moore would take the majority of first-team reps,...

An advanced analytics perspective on the most-recent Chiefs game: a 30-6 win over the Denver Broncos.

Patrick Mahomes already back at practice for Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs held their collective breath when superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes went down with an dislocated kneecap in a 30-6 victory over the Denver Broncos last Thursday night, but by all accounts, they dodged a serious bullet. Not only did Mahomes’ injury turn out to be less severe than many initially expected, but he immediately began rehab (primarily in pools) and on Wednesday morning, returned to practice on a limited basis. While meeting with the Kansas City media,...

Chiefs star QB Patrick Mahomes returns to practice

Don’t ever question the reigning MVP’s toughness. Less than a week after suffering a dislocated kneecap in a win over the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes has returned to practice. While it is on a limited basis, this has to be seen as great news for the signal-caller and his team. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid did note that veteran backup Matt Moore will get first-team reps in practice as the team prepares for this week’s game against the Green Bay...

Andy Reid still hasn’t ruled out Patrick Mahomes for the Packers

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Is there a chance Mahomes might play on Sunday Night Football, or is Reid just being cagey?

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid spoke to the media on Wednesday, and still wouldn’t rule out the possibility that his injured starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes might play against the Green Bay Packers in the Week 8 edition of Sunday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium.

Let’s see where the Chiefs found success (and failure) over the last two weeks

The Kansas City Chiefs defense looked pretty damn good on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos. Coming off a bad performance at home against the Houston Texans, the Chiefs run defense and pass rush stepped up in a big way. It needed to keep momentum on its side after Patrick Mahomes’ injury, and it was able to do so and set the tempo throughout the rest of the...

Sunday won’t be the first time Chiefs have turned to a backup

Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty Images

The Chiefs have a history with second-string quarterbacks relieving injured starters.

When thinking about which football position is the easiest to play, the first positions that come to mind are kickers or punters. They rarely get touched and only play a handful of snaps in each game. The counter to that would be the amount of pressure kickers feel when the field goal is important; the punter also feels some pressure to get off a punt quick and not...

Chiefs release WR De’Anthony Thomas, promote QB Kyle Shurmur

The Chiefs released wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas, according to a team announcement. In a related move, quarterback Kyle Shurmur was promoted to the 53-man roster.  Thomas spent the last five years with the Chiefs, but his 2018 season was brought to a screeching halt after he broke his leg. Then, in January, an arrest for marijuana possession hurt his free agency stock. Before all of that, Thomas saw time both as a returner and receiver for KC. After some time away, he circled back to...
