This means that quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be on the practice field — along with defensive end Frank Clark, cornerback Kendall Fuller and right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. All four missed Sunday’s 26-23 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
With regard to Mahomes, Reid said he couldn’t comment yet on whether the reigning NFL MVP would be able to play in this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, saying that the team is taking it “day-to-day.”

Mahomes suffered a dislocated kneecap during the second half of the Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos. Backup quarterback Matt Moore came in for Mahomes and has started the two games since then. If Mahomes is unable to play on Sunday, Moore will again get the start.
Clark is nursing a neck injury that has caused him to miss the last two games. Fuller has had surgery on a broken thumb, missing the last three games. Duvernay-Tardif has missed only one game with an ankle injury he suffered in the Week 9 game against the Green Bay Packers.
Fisher has now missed seven games after undergoing core muscle repair surgery. Okafor has missed a single game with a sprained ankle.
