Patrick Mahomes is going to play, yes or yes

If he could hold his own against Jacksonville, it was somewhat logical that we would see him in the game against the Bengals. The self-confessed quarterback who played through a lot of pain in the divisional round, however after a few days of rest, it is ready to play.

“I’ve been through a few days of treatment, a few days of rehab. It feels good so far. I feel better than I thought I would feel after the game. Moving it around during the game definitely hurt.

How does Mahomes’ injury affect?

Although Mahomes assures that his recovery is going well, it is a fact that he is not 100. His ankle will not heal in a couple of days and this forces him and the team to modify the style of play.

With the ankle limited, expect an even more aggressive defense from the Bengals to try to thwart shooting from Mahomes, who will need a bag of protection stronger than ever to keep from straining that ankle or even exposing it to another injury. . The more protection you have, the more time you have to throw without over-twisting that ankle. and connecting primarily with Travis Kelce.

It already happened before the Jaguars. Mahomes rarely played outside the pocket after the play of the injury, and another alternative will be to bet on the carries, so Isiah Pacheco probably has more work than ever.
