Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid said the quarterback would practice Wednesday, and the team would increase his workload "a little bit more" this week to see how his knee responds. So far so good as he was a full participant for the first time since he was injured. Mahomes' practice particpation suggests he could be on the verge of returning to game action.
Reid's decision will come down to how Mahomes' knee reacts to increased stress this week during practice, and how whether the medical team is comfortable with his recovery.
Wednesday's practice is an excellent first step this week in Mahomes' potential returning to action. How he progresses throughout the week will tell the rest of the story.
