Mahomes appeared in practice on Wednesday giving some hope that the MVP could return sooner than expected from a dislocated kneecap to play in one of the biggest NFL matchups of the season.
The Chiefs are preparing backup Matt Moore to start, and they have elevated rookie Kyle Shurmur from the practice squad as a potential backup.
The Chiefs and Packers will play at 7:20 p.m. on Sunday.
