Fortunately for the Chiefs, the early prognosis for Mahomes appears good. Head coach Andy Reid took told the media that he expects Mahomes to be good to go for the AFC Championship Game.
That said, Mahomes still needs to go through the NFL concussion protocol in order to be eligible to play. And concussions can be tricky things to navigate through.
Mahomes was playing superb football prior to his injury. He completed 70-percent of his passes for 255 yards and a touchdown, and had another touchdown on the ground.
Chad Henne was able to hold down the fort just well enough to keep the Browns from making a comeback. But Chiefs fans will definitely prefer to have Mahomes under center when the Buffalo Bills come to Arrowhead Stadium.
