Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and CB Bashaud Breeland remain in the NFL’s concussion protocol, working in practice on a limited basis, but also improving.
“The guys that are in the concussion protocol, which is Breeland and Mahomes, were limited in what they did,” Reid told reporters on Thursday. “But listen, they all got good work in. That was the important thing as we went through today.”
Reid said that Mahomes took “the majority” of the starting QB snaps today at practice.
“Pat looked good out there,” Reid said. “He did a nice job, when he was doing it. It looks like he’s moving around well. He feels good. It’s just important that we follow the protocols and that’s what we’re doing.”
Everything suggests that he’s approaching the conclusion of the NFL’s return-to-participation protocols.
“He looks like Pat to me,” Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy told reporters with a chuckle. “He’s been great in meetings. He’s fun, he’s energetic. You can always count on Pat being Pat.”
On the non-Mahomes front, Chiefs RB Le’Veon Bell had his left knee swell up during practice on Wednesday. He was held out of practice today because of that. He only had 11 snaps against the Browns in the divisional round. Other than that addition to the injury report, everything remains status quo from Wednesday. Friday’s practice participation will likely determine the game status for a number of players like Sammy Watkins, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Rashad Fenton.
