KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is questionable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Arrowhead Stadium, according to the team's official injury report.

Mahomes, the reigning NFL MVP, who dislocated his right kneecap early in the second quarter Oct. 17 during a win against the Denver Broncos, has practiced in a limited capacity throughout the last two weeks. He missed the Chiefs' loss last Sunday against Green Bay because of the injury.

Coach Andy Reid told reporters Friday afternoon that Mahomes "did some good things" at practice this week before declining to say if he'd be available or not.

Mahomes told NBC Sports before the 31-24 loss against the Packers that he would have played if it was a playoff game, but he's also been dealing with a sprained ankle, which he suffered in the season opener at Jacksonville and re-aggravated in multiple games.

In Mahomes' absence, quarterback Matt Moore played well, completing 24 of 36 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, but Kansas City still came up short against Green Bay in the team's third straight home loss.

The Chiefs also listed defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin), cornerback Kendall Fuller (thumb) and defensive end Frank Clark (neck) as questionable for Sunday.

Jones was the only player among the four officially listed as questionable who was a full participant Friday at practice.

Kansas City will be without three other key starters — left tackle Eric Fisher (groin), defensive end Alex Okafor (ankle) and right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif — who've all been ruled out for the game against the Vikings, which kicks off at noon.

Left guard Andrew Wylie, who missed the last three games with a sprained ankle, was a full participant all week at practice and will be available.
