Myles Garrett shoots down Travis Kelce’s notion Browns were headhunting Patrick Mahomes

The Cleveland Browns’ defensive rotation recently received tirades from the Kansas City Chiefs led by tight end Travis Kelce after their AFC divisional round matchup. Kelce reportedly accused the Browns of purposefully ‘headhunting’ Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the middle of the game to spoil their chances of winning the game.

After hearing the comments, Browns pass-rusher Myles Garrett eventually came to the defense of his teammates and bared that they had no bad intentions to bring Mahomes or any other player down.

“I want to say that nobody on our team is head hunting, going after guys or trying to hurt a guy, no matter how good he is,” Garrett said via 92.3 The Fan. “We are praying for his recovery and praying for his success. He has always been a quality guy and the way he does stuff for the community. He is a leader on and off the field that you appreciate seeing, especially from a guy of that caliber and just always trying to be a positive force everywhere he goes.”

The 2018 NFL MVP was brought down to the ground after receiving a hard hit from Browns linebacker Mack Wilson while in the middle of a rushing attempt on third-and-1. Mahomes needed help to exit the field and immediately headed to the blue tent where he was further examined.

After a short while, Mahomes headed to the locker rooms and never came back to the game after being diagnosed with a concussion. After the Browns’ 22-17 loss, Wilson took to Twitter and bared that he had no bad intentions when he made the play.

He also gave a shoutout to Mahomes and offered well-wishes of his recovery.

Mahomes didn’t have any ill feelings against Wilson as well and still replied to the post with positive words.

The Chiefs are now forced to play the waiting game as they await their quarterback’s playing status against the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game.

Hopefully, Patrick Mahomes will have a swift recovery and make it back to help his team notch the must-win game on Jan. 24.
