Kansas City, Missouri – Andy Reid, Kansas City coach, said he doesn’t know if Patrick Mahomes It will remove NFL’s concussion protocol in time for next Sunday’s AFC Asian Championship match. But Reid indicated that Mahomes may have felt good enough to return to the team-level round match on Sunday.
After being hit and knocked to the ground, Mahomes got up and momentarily stunned. Then he headed for a short test in the medical side tent before quickly heading down a flight of stairs and then ascending the Arrowhead Stadium Tunnel into the Chiefs’ locker room.
“There was an opportunity the day Patrick was back [the game]Reid said. “I saw him running through the tunnel. By the time he got to that point he was feeling fine. But there is a certain protocol that you have to follow that gets it out of the coach’s hand, the player’s hand, and the doctor’s hand.”
The Chiefs face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Arrowhead in the AFC Title match. Reed said they have a plan for whether Mahomes or Henne start in Quarterback.
You don’t have to think about it. You just have to go ahead and make sure you get an answer if there is and an answer if there isn’t. I can’t tell you from a medical point of view, ”said Reid. I don’t know that. It’s their decision and I’m just following it. ”
