Patrick Mahomes was pulled in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game despite clearing the NFL's concussion protocol after taking a shot to the head because coach Andy Reid felt the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback needed a break.
Things didn't look good for Mahomes and his owners after taking a big hit and needing help to get off the field. It's great news Mahomes cleared protocol right away, even though he wasn't put back in a game that was already over at that point. The Chiefs offense is struggling, but owners can at least breathe a sigh of relief that it looks like Mahomes should be good to go in Week 8.
The Chiefs have already locked up the top seed in the AFC so it wouldn't be surprising if other starters besides Mahomes end up sitting or having reduced workloads in Week 17. This news is a great example of why redraft fantasy seasons should end in Week 16.
