The mother of Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes said what everyone is thinking on Sunday afternoon.
How do NFL players constantly get up after getting tackled so hard?
Randi Mahomes, the mother of the MVP quarterback, had to watch her son take a pretty brutal hit to the head on Sunday afternoon.
The Chiefs quarterback was wrapped up in the pocket when he took a major blow to his helmet area. The Chiefs were getting blown out by the Titans, but Mahomes remained in the game. He quickly exited following this hit to the helmet.

Thankfully for Patrick, the injury doesn’t appear to be as serious as it looked.
The Chiefs quarterback reportedly cleared concussion protocol on Sunday afternoon.
Mahomes cleared concussion protocol? Wow. Thought for sure that was a concussion.
