Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes got up shaking his right hand after taking a hit in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Patriots and his next pass was wobbly enough to create concern that he might have to come out of the game.
Mahomes never did come out of what turned out to be a 23-16 win and head coach Andy Reid said after the game that he could tell Mahomes “wasn’t gripping all that well” after picking up the injury. Mahomes said it impacted his throws on deep balls, but that he didn’t consider making way for Matt Moore.
Mahomes admitted it doesn't feel great but "it's something you play with" the story went on to say. This is something to keep an eye on this week and we'll likely know more based on practice reports. Moore would get the start if Mahomes can't go, and may be worth picking up if you're in deeper leagues where QBs aren't always available.
