But according to head coach Andy Reid, that injury shouldn’t be any cause for concern heading into Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans.
Mahomes was a full participant in each practice this week.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said there are no concerns with QB Patrick Mahomes (hand), adding Mahomes threw all week.
Reid said the team is “leaning away from playing” WR Mecole Hardman this week vs. Texans.
Reid said DT Chris Jones did not practice Friday because of an illness.

Mahomes has put together an MVP-caliber campaign so far this season. Through 13 games, the superstar QB has collected 4,160 yards, 33 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on 65.8 percent passing.
In last week’s win over the Denver Broncos, he threw for 352 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.
Mahomes has been healthy and available for Kansas City all season, and that doesn’t appear to be changing this week.
With Mahomes at full-go, the Chiefs are heavy favorites over the league-worst Texans. Sunday’s Week 15 contest will kickoff at 1 p.m. ET in Houston.
