Chiefs not worried about Patrick Mahomes’ toe

Divisional Round - Cleveland Browns v Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes was grimacing — and limping — after the Chiefs’ second touchdown Sunday. He injured the big toe on his left foot, needing attention in the blue medical tent in between series.

But that became a footnote (pun intended) when the Chiefs’ quarterback departed with a concussion with 7:11 remaining in the third quarter.

The bad news for the Chiefs is the uncertainty regarding Mahomes’ status for the AFC Championship Game. He will have to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before he can return.

The good news for the Chiefs is they don’t expect his toe to affect him.

“Yeah, I think he’ll be OK there for right now with the toe part,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, via Charles Goldman of The Chiefs Wire. “I think we’ll be alright there.”

The practice reports Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will provide an indication of where Mahomes is in his bid to lead the Chiefs to a second consecutive Super Bowl.

  1. You want a toe? I can get ya a toe. Believe me, there are ways, dude. You don’t even wanna know about ‘em, believe me. Hell, I can get ya a toe by three o’clock this afternoon. With nail polish.

  2. C’mon Patrick, if you get to the Super Bowl again, and finally meet and beat Rodgers, the legacy grows exponentially!

  3. For all of the praise that Reid gets, there should be a lot more outrage over that play call on 3rd and 1. Why would you call for an injured and hobbling Mahomes to run a speed option when Hill is almost always able to get the edge (and at least 1 yard) whenever they run the various versions of the fly sweep? Or they’ve got a TE that always seems to be open. Or they could have just put in their FB and run a power or lead play.

    But for whatever reason Reid constantly needs to show how smart he thinks he is by making ridiculous calls (think of the various single wing plays where 4 backfield players spin to move over 1 spot before the snap, or Poe/Kelce lining up as QB in wildcat) rather than just going out and beating the opponents.

  4. Isn’t Reid the dude that said Mahomes “passed” all of his neurological tests in the locker room? He is obviously dodging the questions and doing a very poor job at it.

  5. As much as I want my Bills in the Super Bowl, I still hope Patrick Mahomes will be cleared and 100% for the game. If we win against them with all their weapons, great, we deserve it and earned it. If we lose then maybe we see them next year.
    Two amazing young QB leaders being at their best is what I want to see. Let the chips fall where they may.

  6. Are we sure all the Chiefs agree? Travis Kelce might have something to say about “toe hunting” by the Browns.

  7. All the experts will say Andy Ried knows more about cheeseburgers and football than I ever will…oh wait.
    Patty M. was already hobbled — already — but “THE ONLY WAY TO GET A YARD OR TWO in the game WAS BY RUNNNG YOUR ALREADY-HOBBLED QB? Is this the Mike Shannahan/RG3 school of football? Puleeze. Anyone watching the game knew that. Who called that play? No wonder EB does not have a HC…HORRIBLE CALL…with all their weapons?

    So, the Chef brain trust “does not think Mahomes toe will be a problem?” Well, they didn’t think it was a problem when it WAS a problem! Now he’s got a toe problem AND he was CONCUSSED. NICE JOB FATSO. YOU’RE CLEARLY BETTER AT CHEESEBURGERS

    See, There are times like this that Andy Reeves (sic) DOES NOT KNOW MORE THAN DO I. THAT WAS A HORRBKE PLAY CALL!!!!!

  8. After how he looked trying to stand after the hit to his head the toe is the least of their worries.

  9. “”He will have to receive clearance from an independent neurologist””

    Independent. (chuckle, chuckle)

  10. toe is not the issue here. nearly having your head ripped off and slammed to the ground is the problem.

  11. Big test for the concussion protocol. Does an “independent” neuroligist do the right thing here, or cave in to the pressure that is sure to come from the NFL?

  12. You want a toe? I can get ya a toe. Believe me, there are ways, dude. You don’t even wanna know about ‘em, believe me. Hell, I can get ya a toe by three o’clock this afternoon. With nail polish.


    Bunny’s toe?

  13. Maybe he doesn’t have a concussion…it’s just a headache from the pain in the toe…
