During the Kansas City Chiefs' victory over the New England Patriots in Week 14, Patrick Mahomes injured his hand. Following Wednesday's practice, Mahomes spoke about the status of his bruised hand.

“Today was the first day I was really able to get a grip on [the ball],” Mahomes said on Wednesday, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. “I was able to kind of flick it around yesterday, but today was the first day I was able to really grip the ball, throw it and drive it down the field a little bit.”

When the injury happened, the gunslinging quarterback seemed to be limited in what throws he could make. Mahomes explained how scary the injury was following the game this past Sunday.

“It's doing better. A lot of the swelling went down these last two days, so I was able to throw the football around today. … Definitely was a little scary after the game when it was a little bit bruised and the swelling and stuff like that. We've done more and more treatment since the swelling went away, so I was able to throw the football and everything.”

The injury occurred in the first half when Mahomes was taken to the ground by a Patriots defender. The Chiefs franchise quarterback immediately grabbed for his hand and was wincing in pain.

Nevertheless, he remained in the game and ended up making enough plays to defeat New England on the road. Kansas City became the first team to take down the Patriots at Gillette Stadium since the Carolina Panthers did it in 2017.

Despite the injury hindering him earlier in the week, it doesn't appear that Mahomes' hand injury will affect him in Week 15 against the Denver Broncos.
