Patrick Mahomes Trending Towards Playing In AFC Championship

As of right now, we still don’t know if the Kansas City Chiefs will have their franchise quarterback on the field this weekend against the Buffalo Bills. We did, however, get some good news from Andy Reid on that front.

According to the head coach, Patrick Mahomes took the majority of the offensive snaps at practice on Thursday. That is a significant development considering the reigning Super Bowl MVP is still working his through the concussion protocol.

“Pat looked good out there,” Reid said, via Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star. “He’s moving around well. He feels good. It’s just important we follow the protocol, and that’s what we’re doing.”

Considering he was limited in Wednesday’s practice, this is obviously moving in the right direction. Mahomes will certainly be needed against a formidable Bills defense.

Despite missing a large portion of the Cleveland game last Sunday, Mahomes completed 21 of his 30 pass attempts (70 percent) for 255 yards and touchdown while establishing a massive lead. The Browns were able to pull within striking distance with Mahomes out, but still came up short.

Chad Henne is a serviceable quarterback at best. It’s not only about going against Buffalo’s defense. It’s also about keeping up with that Josh Allen-Stefon Diggs combination on the other side of the football.

Mahomes, as long as he’s healthy enough to play, gives the Chiefs a significantly better chance. In other news, water is wet.
