Patrick Mahomes “I’m doing great, Asian Championships week, I’m ready to go” He said Wednesday. “It [his ankle] Good health, I’ve had a few days of therapy, and a few days of rehab. I’m excited to get out on the practice field and test it out, look where I am. It feels good so far.”

Mahomes, who suffered a sprained ankle in last weekend’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, confirmed all along that he would play in Sunday’s AFC Championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and now it looks like he’s headed in that direction. He continued talking about the condition of his ankle, For all NFL media, saying he had been receiving therapy “constantly since Saturday night” after the teams’ Tour victory against Jaguars and had only been home much more than to get some sleep. JuJu Smith-Schuster, the Chiefs’ top wide receiver, expressed his utmost confidence Wednesday in Mahomes’ ability to play at a high level even with a high ankle sprain.

“There’s nothing stopping Pat from doing what Pat does,” Smith-Schuster said. Via NFL Media.

On Monday, Reid confirmed to reporters that Mahomes does indeed have a sprained ankle, adding that he is “fine” and “working hard on treatment.” Reid also indicated that he wanted to wait and see how Mahomes was feeling before deciding how many reps he would get throughout the week of training. While it’s not known how well Mahomes trained, getting on the field on Wednesday is a good sign.

Reed also noted that Mahomes’ ankle injury is not as severe as Mahomes’ injury in Week 1 of the 2019 season, also against Jacksonville. That should be music to the ears of Chiefs fans, especially considering that a week after his 2019 injury, he set his club on fire. Raiders going 30-for-44 passing, 443 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions.

In the first quarter against the Jaguars last weekend, Mahomes went down after a tackle and the defender’s leg landed on his right ankle, which he sprained while stepping on the ground. Mahomes limped and limped to the sideline, but he stayed in the game for the time being, and eventually his ankle was tied.

Here’s a look at how the injury occurred:

The sprained ankle is evident on replays, as the Jaguars’ Arden Key and Corey Peters tackled the quarterback.

Mahomes eventually headed to the Chiefs’ locker room early in the second quarter visibly annoyed at being taken out of the game. He was replaced by backup Chad Henne, The 37-year-old ex-Jaguar Who hasn’t started a game in eight years. Taking on Chiefs backup at the 1-yard line, Henne led a long and impressive drive, culminating in his first post-season touchdown.

Mahomes was the first Chiefs player to come out of the locker room after halftime, and after taking a few warm-up throws, he came back on the first drive of the second half and would not come out again. At some moments it seemed like he was still limping.

Mahomes addressed his unwillingness to leave the match after the win.

“Yeah, I didn’t want to go and they kind of gave me an ultimatum that I wouldn’t come back unless I went there, so they’re trying to take care of me, we’ve got a lot of great people here, but it’s going to take a lot to keep me out of a football game.”

Before coming out with the injury, Mahomes was 12 of 15 for 84 yards and 1 touchdown. He finished the game at 22-for-30 with 195 yards, two touchdowns, a completion percentage of 73.3 and a passer rating of 112.5.
