Patrick Mahomes Says His Teammates Can Cover His Injury

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes intends to play in the Super Bowl for as long as his ankle allows. 

Patrick Mahomes sustained a high ankle sprain in the Divisional Round against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He missed the final 14 minutes of the first half, but returned to the second.

He went on to play every snap of the Championship Game, throwing for 326 yards and two touchdowns against Cincinnati.

“A lot of those guys sat on that loss for a year when we lost to the Bengals in the AFC championship the year before,” Patrick Mahomes said

“And I think guys were ready to go, and ready to play in the AFC championship. I’m glad we won it, but the job’s not finished. We still got to go out there and win another game.”

“I’m just gonna make it real quick,” Mahomes said Monday during Super Bowl LVII Opening Night. 

“I’ll play through all injuries that the trainers will let me play through. That’s the list. As long as the trainers are OK for me to get out there, I’m going to play through it.

“You won’t know until you get out there in the game,” Mahomes said. “I’m gonna push it. I’ll try to leave it all on the line. I think you all saw that in the last game that I played. But it’s about relying on your teammates — and I got a lot of great teammates around me — and not trying to do too much. But I’ll definitely be in a better spot than I was last game.”

“You’re in the biggest game of your life.” Mahomes said “And you want to go out there and make memories with your teammates. I think the biggest motivating factor is to step on that field and try to be the best. And we know we got a great challenge with the Philadelphia Eagles, so it will be a great game.”
