The reigning MVP is back.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes returned to game action Sunday after missing two contests with a knee injury, and though his team suffered a 35-32 road loss against the Tennessee Titans, Mahomes played one of his best games of the season.
He said Thursday he feels fully recovered from the injuries that have plagued him since the first week of the campaign.
"I would probably say (this is the best I've felt since) going into the Jacksonville game," he told the reporters, according to Chiefs Wire's Charles Goldman. "Just being able to not have to worry about the ankle or not worry about the knee and just being able to go out there and play football the way that I've played it my whole career so far."
Mahomes completed 36 of 50 passes for 446 yards and three touchdowns in his Week 10 return. The 24-year-old initially appeared on the Chiefs' injury report with an ankle issue prior to Week 2, but he didn't miss any games until dislocating his right kneecap in Week 7.
"Just going out there and being able to play the game, do the things I've grown (accustomed) to doing, scrambling and doing all that different type of stuff and coming out healthy was definitely a positive sign," the signal-caller said, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.
The 6-4 Chiefs sit atop the AFC West and will travel to Mexico City to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday.
