Patrick Mahomes: I’ll be good to go next week

AFC Divisional Playoffs - Jacksonville Jaguars v Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes says he has no doubt he’ll play in the AFC Championship Game.

Mahomes said on NBC after injuring his ankle against the Jaguars that X-rays were negative and he’s confident he can play through the injury.

“They haven’t diagnosed anything yet, but I’ll be good to go,” Mahomes said.

Mahomes credited his teammates for coming through on a day when he was less than 100 percent healthy.

“It’s a credit to the guys around me. Our offensive line kept me clean in the pocket, knowing I couldn’t move,” Mahomes said.

Mahomes said he never wanted to leave the game but that the coaching and medical staffs told him he had to have the ankle examined during the second quarter. He’ll surely undergo plenty more tests in the week ahead, but he has no doubt where he’ll be on Conference Championship Sunday.

  1. Lamar getting roasted on Twitter after Mahomes wanted to play on and balled with 1 leg and threw TDs.

  2. Given the reaction to my comment in the first half, 70% of fans would have already put Mahomes on the shelf for the season. Luckily Mahomes, Reid, and the Chiefs have more competitive fire that all that. Gutsy game by Mahomes, and I would expect nothing less from a player in any sport who desires to be thought of among the greats. Great players fight through injury and adversity in the critical games and moments. They do not sit on the bench dreaming of the next paycheck or the following preseason. That is not what inspires people.

  3. A lot of credit to Henne. He was more than adequate in Mahomes absence. Great job by him, by the other Chiefs players, and the coaching staff. Those 7 points came in pretty handy!

  4. Props to mahomes for playing through an ankle injury that looked as painful as a broken ankle.

    Shame on the jaguars defense for allowing henne to march down the field. And shame on the jags play calling. For a team that said they had nothing to lose, half your plays were unaggressive screens that went nowhere.

    Henne had help from the refs with the BS roughing the passer call on 3rd down to extend the drive!!

  6. Impressive drive by Henne that made a huge difference in the endgame of this one. Nothing against Lawrence but as a Bills fan I’d prefer him over a hobbled Mahomes next week, and I think most Bengals fans would too.

  7. We already knew the fix was in for buffalo KC championship game… sorry bengals fans get ready to get hosed tomorrow…

  8. Mahomes will be less than 100% which will limit his mobility which is his strength. Sadly he’ll be playing on one leg next Sunday.

    BILLS GONNA CRUSH KC

    _____________

    Did I sleep right through the Bills/Bengals game? Yikes! Time for a vacation.

  10. Playing on that ankle probably did more damage, but I expect the extra day off will give him an advantage over whoever he plays next.

  11. Can that actually call the game correctly ??

    They ignored 3 roughing the passers against KC . One was a clothesline , one was a helmet to chin, one was a hit, a leap and and full body weight land on Lawrence. 45 yards and 3 first downs …

  12. Terrible coaching by the jags, how do you let a flamingo have all the time in the world to throw?

  13. All Jacksonville had to do was cover Kelce and they couldn’t. Without a mobile Mahomes Chiefs in trouble. Buffalo or Cincinnati have better offenses.

  14. Good to see 37 year old Henne come in and stick it to his old team. He was probably itching to play in this one after all the disrespect he received from the fans in Jacksonville during his time there battling with Bortles & Gabbert for the starting job.

    If you know this, shouldn’t you be in Vegas making huge coin on these games?

  16. Great win for the Kansas City Racists, No, not one Native American was offended, by your name, field name, drum, war paint,or chant during the game. Other teams can not even own a feather but yet you roll on with media love. May the next team crush you and the Natives have you cursed for the future cause we all can not stand anymore of the racism or Chris Collinsworth salivating over #15 Kermit the Frog.

    You’re preaching to people who probably stay home for 2 weeks when they get a sniffle.

  18. What’s with all the referee conspiracy? Jag fans need to know the zebras have zero love for the Chiefs. Both teams had bad /no calls. You lost because of 2 turnovers in 2 minutes. Not because some infraction got missed

  19. …..and Lamar couldn’t go with his PCL situation. Not a good look for LJ.

  20. Lamar doesn’t have a $440 million contract. I wouldn’t risk it either. He’d have to be king chump to do so.

    You are 100percent correct but traditionally KC fans are the biggest whiners in the NFL so there’s that

  23. It’s amazing as a 35 + year Chiefs fan to read the whiney clowns hating on KC out of jealousy. Mahomes showed his magic in the 1st quarter and grit in the 2nd half. BTW – Kelce is another level and a class of his own.

    Allen’s 1-1 when he has 3 TOs, he’s 3-1 when he has 2 TOs, and he’s 7-1 when he has 1 TO, and he’s 3-0 when he has No TOs.

    I’m good with that!

    GO BILLS!!!

    You can do that when your contract is guaranteed. I’m impressed too though. Mahomes is the first player to ever play on a bum ankle. Crown him now.
