Mahomes underwent an MRI on Friday, and the team claims the results were the "best-case scenario" for the injury. Despite the positive outlook, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the QB is still expected to miss about three weeks. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was the one to relay the results of his MRI, but did claim that they are still seeking second opinions to confirm that he will be good to go without missing too much time.
The quarterback attempted the scary run on fourth down with just over nine minutes to play in the second quarter, but was able to walk off to the locker room under his own power, with a minor limp. While he is out, Moore is expected to be the starter for the 5-2 Chiefs, who still hold first place in the AFC West, despite dropping two straight games at home to the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans. The veteran backup completed 10-of-19 passes for 117 yards in relief, and is expected to get the start when the Chiefs visit the Green Bay Packers on October 27th.
