Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes says first practice went better than expected

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The focus for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has shifted from whether he can play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Cincinnati Bengals to how effective he can be.

Mahomes indicated that his high ankle sprain has improved throughout the week and that he was able to get through the Chiefs' first practice of the week without much trouble.

"I thought I had a good day yesterday," Mahomes said Thursday. "Overall probably better than I expected being able to go out there and throw the football and get in the work I needed to get in.
