We now know more about the status of Patrick Mahomes for the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.
More good news continues to arrive for the Kansas City Chiefs when it comes to injured star quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With the AFC Championship Game only four days away, plenty of fans out there are worried he may not be able to rock against the Buffalo Bills.
Well, things are certainly trending in the opposite direction, as Mahomes will reportedly undergo a ‘light’ practice on Wednesday. Even better, Ian Rapoport has stated the signal-caller will see his work ramp up in the days leading up to the big showdown.
It’s feeling more and more likely Patrick Mahomes will suit up to face the Buffalo Bills
Hearts dropped all over Kansas City last Sunday when Mahomes went down with a concussion against the Browns in the Divisional Round. As he was walking off the gridiron, he looked a bit wobbly and had to be helped my multiple team trainers.
Shortly after the Chiefs came away with the win, thanks in large part to the heroics from Chad Henne, Mahomes took to Twitter to let everyone know he was doing fine. Mahomes has since been in the concussion protocol, hoping he’ll be good to go with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line this weekend.
Obviously, the Kansas City coaches are going to be extremely careful with their $502 million man. Mahomes won’t be rushed back if it’s deemed he’s not ready to play.
However, the early signs this week have been nothing short of positive and the general feeling around the team is that the quarterback will be playing on Sunday. While we still need to wait for the official word from the Chiefs and the NFL, the AFC Championship Game looks like it will feature quite the battle between Mahomes and Josh Allen. Fans across the country can’t wait for that opening kick.
