Shark Bites

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) will play in Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. Mahomes "worked hard on the treatment and is doing OK," Reid said, adding that this high-ankle sprain isn't as bad as the one Mahomes suffered in 2019. That injury occurred in the season opener and didn't cost Mahomes any further time. There wasn't much doubt that Mahomes would play against Cincinnati this weekend, considering he returned to the win over Jacksonville. The question is to what extent the ankle injury will impact his performance. We'll keep a close eye on the situation throughout the week. The Chiefs are currently just 1-point favorites over the Bengals, suggesting some concern about Mahomes' status.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said Thursday that his ankle is "in a good spot" coming out of the AFC Championship win over the Bengals. Mahomes ran for just 8 yards in that one but didn't seem impacted when throwing, finishing with a 326-2-0 passing line. He has another 10 days to get ready for the Super Bowl.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that there's "true uncertainty" about how Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' injured ankle will hold up in today's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. The ankle didn't swell up as much as the team thought it would, and Mahomes looked better in practice than expected, per Rapoport. But Mahomes didn't sprint at all this week, and it's unclear how the ankle will respond when Mahomes gets hit. There's clearly elevated risk to Mahomes in fantasy lineups today.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) practiced fully all week and doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. Mahomes still tossed 2 TDs and 195 yards while looking visibly slowed by this ankle issue last week vs. the Jaguars. Even if his mobility is limited, his full practice participation every day this week should instill confidence in fantasy managers this weekend. It's hard to bet against a dominant player like Mahomes despite the fact that the Bengals' defense ranks as the 2nd-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) put in another full practice on Thursday. It means that ankle responded well to Wednesday's full workout. Mahomes will start Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals -- and it's looking like the ankle won't be a major limiting factor.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) practiced fully on Wednesday ahead of the AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. It's good to see the superstar wasn't limited by the high ankle sprain he sustained this past Saturday vs. the Jaguars. HC Andy Reid said on Monday that he anticipated Mahomes will play in the AFC Championship, so this news is only further confirmation that the team feels good about where their QB is health-wise. We'll be sure to follow this as the week unfolds in case anything changes.
