Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes discuss managing the high-ankle sprain

When Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes spoke after Sunday’s 23-20 AFC Championship win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the press conference resembled a sports documentary on one of the year’s biggest stories.

The sports world held its breath as Mahomes left the Chiefs’ Divisional Round victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars with a high-ankle sprain. Though the league’s passing leader returned to the game, the injury was subject to endless speculation in practice leading to the AFC Championship.

Mahomes finished 29 of 43 for 326 yards and two touchdowns.
