Patrick Mahomes provides positive injury update ahead of Super Bowl

Patrick Mahomes has confirmed that his ankle is making progress ahead of the Super Bowl. In the divisional round, Mahomes suffered a high-ankle sprain. Mahomes was able to play the following week in the AFC Championship Game but he was evidently limited.

Still, Mahomes was able to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to a win over the Bengals. This Sunday, the Chiefs are playing the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl. “It’s definitely in a better position than it was at this time last week,” Mahomes said, per Sports Illustrated.

In free agency, the Chiefs lost All-Pro wide receiver Hill, who was traded to the Miami Dolphins after he and the Chiefs failed to agree on a new deal. When Hill left the Chiefs, there were question marks regarding the Chiefs' offense without Hill in it.

But the Chiefs have done extremely well without Hill and they are back to the Super Bowl. “We accepted the challenge as players, the coaches and Coach Bieniemy accepted the challenge. We lost an all-time great receiver in Tyreek Hill, someone that did a lot of great things for us, but we’ve got a lot of great receivers as well, and coach Bieniemy and Coach Reid, they went in there and learned what their strengths were, and we maximized that this year.

It’s not just the players, it’s the coaches, it’s everybody in that building," Mahomes said. This Sunday, Mahomes will try to win his second Super Bowl ring. In the 2019 Super Bowl, Mahomes led the Chiefs to a win over the San Francisco 49ers.

The following year, Mahomes led the Chiefs to back-to-back Super Bowls. Unfortunately for Mahomes, he didn't repeat as Super Bowl champion after the Chiefs lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2020 Super Bowl. It remains to be seen if this Sunday Mahomes can win his second Super Bowl.
