Considering he rocked the Raiders a week after his 2019 injury with 44 passes, 30-for-443 yards, 4 touchdowns and 0 interceptions, it’s the Chiefs’ music to his fans’ ears. must be.

In the first quarter against the Jaguars last weekend, Mahomes was downed on a tackle and twisted when the defender’s foot landed on his right ankle and fell to the ground. Mahomes was limping into the sidelines, but he remained in the game for the time being and was eventually taped to his ankle.

“Yeah, I didn’t want to go. They gave me an ultimatum that if I don’t go there, I won’t come back. They’re trying to take care of me. There are a lot of people here.” There are great people out there, but it’s going to take a long time to keep me out of the football game,” he said.
