KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Quarterback Patrick Mahomes said he feels better physically to direct himself to Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers than he has so far since the start of the week of the season.
"I just may not have to worry about my ankle or worry about my knee and I will just be able to go out there and play football the way I have played it throughout my career so far," Mahomes said Thursday as the Kansas City Chiefs begin preparing for their game in Mexico City.
"Just going out there and playing the game, doing the things I was able to do [accustomed] to do, mix and do all these different things and get healthy was definitely a positive sign. & # 39; & # 39;
Mahomes returned to the lineup for last week's game against the Tennessee Titans. He missed the previous two-half weeks after displacing his right knee during a Week 7 match against the Denver Broncos.
Previously, Mahomes injured his ankle in Week 1 game against the Jagunville Jaguars. He reports injuries every day after playing with the Jaguars, though he never missed a workout.
Mahomes indicated that he was not worried about re-injury in last week's game.
"The moment I came out on this issue and you kind of undressed and you can just focus on what you need to focus on to be successful as a team, I think this was the moment for me "said Mahomes. "I think the game is played all week and you try to push it to see what you can do and what you can't do. When I came out to this field, I realized that it was okay to go and everything I did with coaches and doctors, had prepared me for the game. & # 39; & # 39;
