Patrick Mahomes says his knee is ‘doing fine’ after loss vs. Titans
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes returned from a knee injury in Week 10.
Although the Chiefs lost to the Tennessee Titans 35-32, Mahomes looked like he had not lost a step. The reigning MVP went 36-for-50 with 446 yards and 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.
While the loss dropped Kansas City to 6-4 on the season, they had to be happy with what they got from Mahomes. They should be even happier that he’s returned and that he’s feeling good.
According to Sam McDowell of Kansascity.com, after the game, Mahomes said his knee was “doing fine”.
“The knee is doing fine,” Mahomes said, via the Kansas City Star. “Just how we expected going into the game. Give credit to the trainers and the training staff for getting me ready to play. The knee feels fine, and I’m glad to get through another game.”
Now that Mahomes is back, the real work starts. At 6-4, the Chiefs are still in first place in the AFC West. However, they don’t have a very comfortable lead.
The Denver Broncos are in last place in the division with a 3-6 record. Then the Los Angeles Chargers are in third with a 4-6 record. Finally, the Oakland Raiders are 5-4, finding themselves barely behind the Chiefs.
The good news is it’s pretty clear that Mahomes hasn’t lost a step. He’s going to at the very least keep Kansas City in every game. The bad news is that lead is shrinking pretty rapidly.
If Mahomes is truly “doing fine” though, you have to assume that Kansas City will go on a run. He’s one of the best and most electrifying quarterbacks in the NFL. Having him healthy again will only make good things happen for the Chiefs.
