But Kansas City’s return to the top of the sport nearly came to an abrupt halt in the AFC divisional playoffs against the Jacksonville Jaguars


Mahomes was forced to the locker room in the second quarter after suffering a sprained ankle, and backup quarterback Chad Henne entered the game. 

In the latest episode of “Quarterback” on Netflix, Mahomes can be heard pleading with the Kansas City coaches to wait until halftime to undergo an X-ray on his ankle.

“Why can’t I do it at halftime?” Mahomes told Chiefs assistant coach Eric Bieniemy after being told to head to the locker room. 

“F—!” Mahomes yelled while throwing down his coat and running off the field. “God—- it!” 


Mahomes had an X-ray on his ankle, and Henne quarterbacked the Chiefs until the results on Mahomes’ ankle came back negative. 

“Whenever you’re in that X-ray machine, no matter what you think has happened, you lose your breath. You don’t know what to even think,” Mahomes said in the docuseries.

Mahomes returned to the game and played through a badly sprained ankle, leading the Chiefs to a 27-20 victory over Jacksonville.

The ankle injury was a major topic of conversation heading into the 2023 Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles, and Mahomes reaggravated his high-ankle sprain in the second quarter. 

Kansas City opens training camp for the 2023 season on July 23rd.
