Per a team announcement, the Chiefs have designated quarterback Chad Henne for return from injured reserve. The news does not come as much of a surprise. Henne, who suffered a broken ankle in the preseason, was reportedly nearing a return to the field.
Whether Henne will actually see game action may be more likely than previously expected. Henne was slated as the team’s backup quarterback, behind Patrick Mahomes, before the season, but when he suffered a broken ankle, the they shifted to Matt Moore.
The quarterback in Kansas City has a lot of question marks at the moment given the uncertain status of Mahomes, who dislocated his kneecap last week. The team has said that Moore will take the majority of first-team reps while Mahomes tries to work his way back. If Mahomes is unable to go this Sunday, Henne could serve as Moore’s backup.
