Patrick Mahomes Injuries
Patrick Mahomes will undergo turf toe surgery on Wednesday. A turf toe is a condition that affects the big toe ligaments. The severity of the injury can vary. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback had the injury against the Denver Broncos. In addition to the turf toe, Mahomes suffered a dislocated kneecap in the same game.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes injured in game against Tennessee Titans
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was injured during a collision with the Titans’ defense during Sunday’s game. He was hit in the head and neck by the defender. He fell to the ground for a moment before walking to the sideline. The injury was not serious, but it was enough to require him to sit out the rest of the game. The backup quarterback took the rest of the snaps in his place.
Chris Jones and Tyrann Mathieu also suffered injuries, but their severity is still unknown. The Chiefs are currently preparing to play the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
QB has turf toe
Patrick Mahomes’ injury is a turf toe, and he’s under the care of a foot specialist to determine the course of treatment. The injury is common and takes two to three weeks to recover. It may limit Mahomes’ scrambling ability, but he should be back in time for the start of training camp.
The turf toe is a sprain of the ligaments that attach the big toe to the toe bones. It occurs when these ligaments swell or stretch too far. In this case, Mahomes suffered the injury during the Kansas City Chiefs’ divisional game against the Cleveland Browns. After the game, he took time off to rest his foot and undergo physical therapy.
He dislocated kneecap in game against Denver Broncos
On a QB sneak, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap and went down. He was helped off the field by trainers and was able to walk on his own, but it appeared as though he would miss some time. The KC Chiefs later ruled him out of the game. As he lay on the ground, the medical staff worked to pop his kneecap back into place. Luckily, his girlfriend and his dad were able to visit him after the game.
The Chiefs quarterback will have to undergo a scan on Friday to determine the extent of his injury, but there’s a good chance he won’t miss more than three weeks. Mahomes’ team is optimistic he’ll be able to play in the rest of the season.
He has wrist issue
The Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a wrist injury during Sunday’s game. The injury occurred during his first touchdown pass, but he continued to play through the pain and will be fine for Thursday night’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Afterwards, he will get x-rays, but it is not expected to keep him from playing.
The injury is not serious and is not considered a long-term concern. However, it is still a concern, especially with the Chiefs’ short turnaround. On Thursday, the Chiefs host the Chargers, and a healthy Mahomes could help the Chiefs take advantage of their division lead.
He will start in AFC title game against Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers acquired Khalil Mack this offseason to harass Patrick Mahomes with a four-man rush. However, the Chargers know that it’s not a smart idea to blitz Mahomes extensively, a strategy that was a disaster against Arizona last week. Instead, the Chargers will hope to make Mahomes work harder on the big stage.
The Chargers are a team with a lot of talent, but they also have a history of losing to the Chiefs. They were just a game behind the Chiefs in the early part of the season, and if the Chiefs won, they would have clinched the AFC West title for the seventh straight season. However, the Chargers collapsed in mid-December and lost to the Chiefs, who were on top of the AFC West when they were eliminated. Now, the two teams will renew their heated rivalry and hopefully make the AFC title game a reality.
