KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) – Quarterback Patrick Mahomes will participate in a “very light practice” Wednesday, reports NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport.
Mahomes exited Sunday’s divisional-round game after taking a hit to the head area and entered the league’s concussion protocol.
The reigning Super Bowl MVP must clear the league’s Return-to-Participation protocol before he can be cleared for full practice and participation in the AFC Championship game against the Buffalo Bills.
In the third quarter against Cleveland, Mahomes took a hit from linebacker Mack Wilson and struggled to get back to his feet. He was taken to the sideline to be evaluated for a concussion, then was seen jogging into the locker room for further evaluation.
Backup Chad Henne took over and held on to the victory and secured a spot in the conference championship.
Prior to leaving the game, Mahomes had completed 21 passes for 255 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for a touchdown on the first drive of the game.
