Wednesday, January 25, is the first day that Kansas City Chiefs players were scheduled to take to the practice field for the first time ahead of the AFC Championship Game. That meant Wednesday was quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ first chance to test his ankle in a practice setting, which was just four days after suffering a high-ankle sprain against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

This is all assuming Mahomes is healthy enough to practice in any capacity.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid shared during his press conference prior to practice on Wednesday that Mahomes was in fact going to practice Wednesday afternoon.

“I think he’ll do probably everything,” Reid said in regards to Mahomes’ practice participation.

Mahomes also spoke to the media prior to practice but after Reid, and gave his own update on his ankle.

“It’s doing good. A few days of treatment, a few days of rehab,” Mahomes said. “Excited to get on the practice field and kind of test it out and see where I’m at. It’s feeling good so far.”

Mahomes attempted to stay in the game, which included getting his ankle taped in between series. However, he eventually went to the locker room. Backup quarterback Chad Henne then replaced Mahomes under center, and led a 12-play 98-yard drive that was capped off with a touchdown on his first and only series.

Mahomes did re-emerge on the sideline not long after heading to the locker room, but the Chiefs simultaneously announced he was questionable to return to the game. According to Ian Rapport of NFL Media, X-rays on Mahomes’s ankle came back negative, but he did appear to have suffered a high ankle sprain.

X-Rays were negative, source said. That’s the good news. But it does appear to be a high-ankle sprain for Patrick Mahomes.
