Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes injured his throwing hand in the win over the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. X-rays on the hand after the game came back clean, but Mahomes is scheduled for more testing on Monday. Rapoport says there's "optimism" that Mahomes will be able to play against the Broncos this weekend but that "no one is absolutely sure" until those test results come back. We'll obviously keep a close eye on this.
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has been diagnosed with a dislocated patella (knee cap), according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Mahomes will undergo an MRI to check for ligament damage. Former NFL head team Dr. David Chao says that Mahomes will eventually need surgery, which will sideline him for 6 to 9 months. It's possible, though, for Mahomes to return in 4+ weeks and play through the injury. We'll continue to update this situation as we learn more.
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes confirmed that he aggravated the ankle injury he originally suffered in Week 1 in Sunday night's loss to the Colts. "Just reaggravated it a little bit there in the first half and then got stepped on in the second half," Mahomes said. "Obviously it's going to be a little sore tomorrow." Neither Mahomes nor HC Andy Reid sounded too concerned about this after the game. Mahomes should be fine for Week 6's game against the Texans, but we'll keep an eye on him this week.
