Patrick Mahomes is ramping up his participation in practice, putting him on track to return from a dislocated knee on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was listed as a full participant during Wednesday's session and is now in line to return to his post under center, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport:
Mahomes has missed Kansas City's last two games since dislocating his knee in the second quarter of a 30-6 win over the Denver Broncos on Oct. 17.
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Mahomes' MRI results were a "best-case scenario" and the Chiefs felt he would miss "about three games."
Kansas City turned to Matt Moore, who hadn't started a game since 2017, in Mahomes' absence the past two weeks. The 35-year-old has played well with 542 passing yards and three touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.
The Chiefs have gone 1-1 in two games with Moore as their starting quarterback. They have opened up a 1.5-game lead over the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West heading into Sunday's game against the Titans.
Mahomes has thrown for 2,180 passing yards and 15 touchdowns with a 65.1 completion percentage in seven games this season.
