Chiefs’ Mahomes practices, remains in protocol

NFL

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol, but practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, raising hopes that the reigning Super Bowl MVP can play in Sunday’s AFC title game against the Bills.

The Chiefs typically breeze through practice on Wednesday with little contact before ramping things up on Thursday, and coach Andy Reid said that fit perfectly with what Mahomes was able to do.

Reid didn’t say what phase of the five-step process Mahomes is in to be cleared to play, but the work he described his quarterback doing coincides with the fourth step. That involves a player resuming noncontact football activities, such as throwing and running, and is the final step before a player is deemed ready to go.

Mahomes was hurt in the third quarter of last Sunday’s 22-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Chad Henne finished the game and would be the starter if Mahomes were unable to play against the Bills.
