Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes lifts spirits of Kansas City fans with latest message after scary hit

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was knocked out of his team’s Week 7 loss to the Tennessee Titans after taking a scary hit late in the ballgame from Titans pass rushers Denico Autry and Jeffery Simmons.

Mahomes gingerly walked off the field and appeared to be in a bit of a daze before entering the medical tent. Mahomes passed requisite concussion tests and avoided the protocol, according to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. Out of precautiounm he was held out of the rest of KC’s 27-3 blowout defeat to the Titans.

Mahomes finished the game with a passer rating of 62.3, the lowest of his NFL career. The Chiefs’ three points were the fewest they’ve scored in a game since Mahomes became QB1.

Fortunately, Mahomes seems on track to play in Week 8 matchup with the New York Giants at Arrowhead Stadium — at least, according to the uplifting tweet Mahomes posted on Tuesday afternoon.

“Can’t wait to get back after it this week! #ChiefsKingdom” Mahomes wrote.

It’s safe to assume the All-Pro quarterback wouldn’t have posted that unless his availability has been assured, so Chiefs fans should breathe a sign of relief.

Kansas City and Mahomes have surprisingly struggled this season. They sit at 3-4 and lead the NFL in turnovers. Perhaps a matchup with the depleted Giants (2-5) is just what the defending AFC champs need to get back on track.

Conveniently, the New York-Kansas City game will be on Monday Night Football, so Mahomes will have an extra day to recuperate.
