Patrick Mahomes is one step closer to returning to action for the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday.
According to head coach Andy Reid, Mahomes returned to practice for the first time this week in preparation for the AFC Championship matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Reid stated that the fourth-year quarterback did take “all the snaps” in practice, but remains in concussion protocol.
Mahomes wasn’t the only Chiefs standout who returned to practice. Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, cornerback Rashad Fenton and defensive back Bashaud Breeland also retuned to action for the first time in over a week.

Kansas City is getting healthy at the right moment
Edwards-Helaire missed the final two games of the season with an ankle injury. Watkins was ruled out with a calf injury and both stars missed the Divisional Round victory over the Cleveland Browns.
Andy Reid said Mahomes took all the snaps in practice. “He feels good,” Reid said. Still in the concussion protocol though
