Mahomes clears concussion protocol

Patrick Mahomes announced that he is good to go for Sunday after being cleared by three different doctors in the team’s press conference on Friday.

Mahomes left Sunday’s Divisional round win in the third quarter after an awkward tackle left him visibly woozy.

Chad Henne came in and held the lead, providing two key plays on the final drive to kill the clock and advance KC to their third consecutive AFC Championship game.

Mahomes will now be back in time to face the 13-3 Bills, who are looking to make their first Super Bowl appearance since Super Bowl XXVIII, the fourth of four straight Super Bowl losses by Buffalo in the early 90s.

The Chiefs are looking to win the AFC for the second consecutive year and keep Lamar Hunt’s trophy in Kansas City, and they will now have their MVP healthy and leading the way.

The AFC Championship is this Sunday at 3:40 CT, with the winner playing either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7.
