Bears fans wishing they could root for Patrick Mahomes against their ribals could get their wish sooner than expected.
Here’s the latest regarding the injured star’s possible return to the lineup:
#Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will practice today. Andy Reid won't rule him out for Sunday night.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will practice on Wednesday. How about that? I can’t imagine it will be a full practice load, but it is better than nothing.
And in another sign of positive news when it comes to a potential quick return for the league’s reigning MVP, Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid has yet to rule out Mahomes for Sunday’s game against the Packers. This is the second time this week Reid was given an opportunity to rule out Mahomes’ return, but declined to do so. On Monday, Reid said “it would be a stretch for him to get there” (via ESPN’s Adam Teicher), but still kept that window of hope open for a quicker-than-anticipated return.
Mahomes suffered a dislocated knee injury on Thursday Night Football nine days ago, but the reports that have crossed the wires since getting tested have been nothing but positive. And while it feels like getting back in the starting lineup for a prime-time affair against Green Bay feels like a rush, Mahomes has proved he can make the impossible look easy with his magical throws.
With Mahomes’ next two games coming against the Packers and Vikings, we’ll be sure to keep an eye on his playing status as updates become available.
