The 25-year-old phenom is due to practice today for Kansas City but in a light way. Patrick Mahomes is still in concussion protocol and even questionable for Sunday.
When number 15 got up, he wobbled as if he could not stand on his own. Mahomes had to be helped to the sideline and walked to the locker room for further evaluation.
When he got there, Mahomes was asked a series of questions, five to be exact. He proceeded to answer everyone correctly, besides the ‘game specific’ question, meaning he could not return.
After that, backup quarterback Chad Henne got his turn at leading the team, and lead he did. Ultimately, the Chiefs went on to win the game and will be playing Buffalo on Sunday.
Update on Mahomes
After the game, Head Coach Andy Reid said that Patrick Mahomes was feeling good. That was a good thing to hear after seeing what happened on Sunday.
Of course, everyone has questions about his status, and Reid can only give so much. On Monday, Reid was asked about his level of optimism for Mahomes and his health come Sunday, and he had this to say.
“I cannot tell you from a medical standpoint where he is”
While that was Monday, there was good news for the Chiefs Wednesday practice. Per Ian Rapoport, Mahomes will practice on Wednesday. However, it will be light practice as he is still in the concussion protocol.
All in all, the star quarterback is still questionable for Sunday’s game. While Chad Henne played great last week, the Bills are no joke, and Kansas City will need the best player in the NFL.
