Chiefs QB Henne to start vs. Chargers

Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes will receive a breather in this weekend’s regular-season finale against the visiting Los Angeles Chargers.

Chad Henne will start Sunday for the Chiefs (14-1), who have clinched the top seed in the AFC.

“Chad will go ahead and play, yeah,” Reid said on Wednesday. “And there’s a good chance that Matt (Moore) is up, but we’ll see when it’s all said and done how that all works out.”

Henne, 35, will start his first game since the 2014 season, when he played for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He has logged 22 offensive snaps in two games this season, completing 5 of 6 passes for 30 yards. He also rushed for a touchdown in the Chiefs’ 43-16 victory over the Denver Broncos on Oct. 25.

Mahomes, 25, finishes the season with a career-high 390 completions for an NFL-leading 4,740 yards with 38 touchdowns and six interceptions. The former NFL MVP also rushed for a career-high 308 yards with two scores.
