“HENNE THING IS POSSIBLE” – Brittany Mahomes cheers on Chiefs backup QB while Patrick Mahomes misses time with a nasty ankle injury

An injury to Patrick Mahomes in the first half of the divisional round between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars resulted in quarterback Chad Henne taking the field when Mahomes hobbled his ankle.

However, when Patrick argued on the sidelines with coach Andy Reid and physical coaches that he was good enough to play, Henne took the field as soon as the starter went into the dressing room.

But Henne mastered a 12-play 98-yard drive that ended in a touchdown and gave the Chiefs a 17-7 lead four minutes before halftime. Even Mahomes’ wife was impressed with the backup quarterback’s work.

This isn’t the first time Patrick has injured himself during a Divisional Round game and Henne has taken over. The same thing happened two seasons ago when Mahomes walked off the field with a foot injury in a game against the Cleveland Browns.

Kansas City won that game 22-17 with Henne converting a crucial 4th deficit.

X-rays were negative, meaning he doesn’t have a long-term injury that will take him out of the playoffs. However, it’s clear he’s in a lot of pain and that could carry over into the later rounds.

The star quarterback returned to the field for the third quarter, but his mobility is clearly hampered by the injury. When Kansas City goes to the conference championship, it’s difficult to imagine a scenario where he’s perfectly healthy — and that’s going to be a big problem against the Buffalo Bills or the Cincinnati Bengals.

What happened to Patrick Mahomes? He is hurt?

After a great start to the game, the Chiefs quarterback dodged the Jaguars’ pass rush, but was unlucky when Arden Key fell over his ankle, causing a high ankle sprain.

He had a bad limp and was unable to put pressure on his right leg for several moments. Although he initially tried to return to the field, he decided to go to the dressing room and check that everything was okay.

Henne was back on the touchline in the second half but it was clear he should remain alert in case anything serious happened.
