Patrick Mahomes injury update: Chiefs’ QB gets positive news ahead of AFC championship game

The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC championship round for the fifth time in a row next week.

In the divisional round, the Chiefs triumphed over the Jacksonville Jaguars after securing a steady 27-20 win. Patrick Mahomes, the star quarterback, was instrumental in the victory, scoring two touchdowns and completing 70 percent of his passes.

But the success didn’t come without any fright, as the 27-year-old was seen leaving the field limping during the second half against the Jaguars.

What is the update on Patrick Mahomes’ injury?

Patrick’s discomfort with his ankle incites huge speculation among the fans about his availability in the game next week. However, the MRI result showed no significant risk involving the high ankle sprain. The x-ray result came back negative.

The chiefs must have felt huge relief knowing their Super Bowl MVP will continue to run wild in the championship game. Mahomes himself also became hyped after the test result.

The five-time pro bowler has a pretty decent record in the history of the playoffs, scoring 30 touchdowns in 12 appearances with 3576 passing yards and a 66.7% completion rate.

Mahomes, who continued his fiery performance for the Chiefs this season, scored 41 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while passing for 5250 yards in 648 attempts.

In the last game, backup Chad Henne, who appeared in the absence of the first-choice quarterback, contributed one touchdown. But in a game of this magnitude, the chiefs will summon all their power. After all, there is a musical rhythm between Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce, which might make all the difference.
