NFL: Andy Reid: Patrick Mahomes will play in AFC Championship


Patrick Mahomes first said it. Now Kansas City head coach Andy Reid confirmed it — the Chiefs’ quarterback will play in next week’s AFC Championship Game against Cincinnati.

Reid told reporters Monday that Mahomes is “doing OK” after sustaining a high-ankle sprain in Saturday’s divisional playoff victory over Jacksonville.

Mahomes declared himself fit to play hours after the injury on Saturday, saying, “I’ll be good to go.”

“Obviously, I have a lot of adrenaline going right now, so we’ll see how it feels,” Mahomes said then. “But I’ll hop right in the treatment and try to do whatever I can to be as close to 100 percent by next week. Luckily for us, we played the early game on Saturday, so we get an extra almost half a day that I can let that ankle rest.”

Mahomes was hurt late in the first quarter when he was tackled by Jacksonville’s Arden Key and Corey Peters. Key fell on Mahomes’ right lower leg as Mahomes fell awkwardly to the ground.

The Chiefs and Bengals meet Sunday afternoon, with the winner advancing to the Super Bowl.
