Patrick Mahomes makes surprising appearance on Chiefs' injury report -- will he miss any games?

The Kansas City Chiefs' injury report Wednesday had one surprising name on it -- Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes' appearance on the Kansas City injury report has put the reigning NFL MVP's status for week 14 in question, four days before the Chiefs host the Buffalo Bills in a critical late-season contest for both teams. Kansas City is hoping to bounce back from a deflating defeat in Green Bay, while Buffalo will be in further danger of missing the playoffs with a defeat at Arrowhead Stadium.

What is Mahomes' injury?

Mahomes has a pectoral issue, according to the team, and it is probable that the injury occurred during Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field.

Mahomes has battled through injuries before in his six full NFL seasons, but he has rarely missed much game time. A knee injury cost the two-time Super Bowl winner two games during the 2019 season and he has played every game since the start of the 2021 season. Mahomes famously played through a high ankle sprain during last season's playoffs, using a lot of gumption -- and even more tape -- to lead the Chiefs to another title.

Mahomes is not expected to miss any action

Mahomes practiced fully on Wednesday despite showing up on the Chiefs' injury report. Barring a severe flare-up or further aggravation to the injury, the superstar quarterback should be good to go when the Bills come to town on Sunday night.

In a season where many other star quarterbacks have gone down with long-term injuries, the Chiefs -- and the NFL -- are invested in keeping Mahomes healthy and upright. Seeing as Kansas City has not had a reliable receiver corps this season, the Chiefs will need Mahomes' invention and playmaking arguably more than ever down the stretch of the regular season -- and into the postseason, where Mahomes has never once had to start a road game.
