Patrick Mahomes went down with a knee injury six days ago in a Thursday night matchup against the Broncos. While the MRI came back with the best news possible, Mahomes was still expected to miss four-to-six weeks.

We all have forgotten that Patrick Mahomes is not of this earth, it would appear. The Chiefs' star quarterback will practice on Wednesday, and head coach Andy Reid would not rule him out for Sunday night's game against the Packers, calling Mahomes "day-to-day".

I lean towards it being extremely unlikely Mahomes plays this week, because while the Packers at Arrowhead on Sunday night is an exciting game, it's far from a must-win for Kansas City. Not to mention all of the other long-term implications from putting Mahomes back in there before he is 100 percent, no doubt about it healthy.

But then again, I believed the initial reports about him missing a month, so what do I know?
