The Chiefs are getting healthy at the right time.

Not only is Nick Bolton already back and Isiah Pacheco cleared to play this week, but now the 21-day window for Mecole Hardman's return is open as well.

Andy Reid told reporters today that Hardman is back and the Chiefs now have three weeks to activate him from the Injured Reserve list.

Chiefs Injury News: Mecole Hardman Close to Return

Hardman has long been a reliable contributor both to the Chiefs' offense and the special teams unit, so his return is a huge boost for an offense that hasn't met expectations so far this year.

He's played sparingly since the Chiefs traded for him midseason, but it's easy to imagine Hardman making a contribution in the playoffs.

Kansas City needs to win out to have a shot at the No. 1 seed. Given the disarray surrounding the offense, it's a blessing to see Hardman back on the practice field.

We'll see when he returns and if Skyy Moore does at all, though this offense is better today than it was yesterday.
