On Wednesday, Mahomes trained with limited capacity, despite being in the NFL concussion protocol, which means there is a high chance that a Super Bowl MVP player will compete against Buffalo bills In the Asian Championship match on Sunday.
Coach Andy Reid was delighted with Mahomes’ progress.
“He looked good,” said Reid. “He’s in the protocol so there are only certain things he can do, but he’s taken all the footage and he’s fine. So, I mean, we’ll follow that protocol as soon as possible.”
Mahomes, who was injured in the third quarter of last Sunday’s 22-17 victory over The Cleveland Browns In the playoff round of the playoffs, he sustained the injury when he was dealt around the head and neck area while carrying football on the QB option. After the match, he was reported to have modified a nerve that extended to his neck.
For Mahomes to play, he needs to complete five steps in the league return protocol. These steps include rest until signs and symptoms return to baseline clearance to start cardio exercises; Stretches and balance exercises with medical supervision; An increase in exercises that include controlled strength training; Resumption of non-contact football activities; The player is then acquitted by the team’s doctors and passes an independent neurological test, at which point he is allowed to practice and play.
It’s uncertain what move Mahomes was in on Wednesday, but judging by what Reid has said, the All-Pro midfielder may be in the fourth step in the process. If the Mahomes continues in the right direction, there’s a good chance they will take part in training on a Thursday or Friday.
Reid said, “He’s been doing really well up to this point and they’re progressing through the day, so today was limited work and no communication, I think it was the schedule for today. And that’s kind of what we’re going to do on Wednesday, so it fits perfectly with that.”
