AP source: Chiefs' Mahomes sustained high ankle sprain

Patrick Mahomes sustained a right high ankle sprain in the Kansas City Chiefs' divisional playoff win over the Jaguars, a person familiar with the nature of the injury told

The Associated Press on Sunday, but the All-Pro quarterback expects to play in next weekend's AFC championship game. Mahomes was hurt late in the first quarter Saturday when

a Jacksonville defender landed on him. X-rays taken during the game came back negative, and Mahomes returned after halftime to lead Kansas City to the 27-20 victory. Mahomes

underwent an MRI on Sunday and it showed no structural damage, a person familiar with the results told the AP, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team did not disclose

the test results. “I don't want to jump to things right now, but let's just see how it goes here the next couple days,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Saturday night. "It's

going to be sore, I know, but let's see where he's at. He's had this before and he was able to keep pushing through, actually against Jacksonville whenever — a couple of years

ago, same type of deal. “The main thing is that he's safe," Reid said, “or as safe as you can be on a football field. That's the important thing.” The Chiefs will play

the winner of Sunday's game between Cincinnati and Buffalo. If it's the Bengals, their rematch of last year's AFC title game would be played at Arrowhead Stadium. If it's the

Bills, the game would occur in Atlanta.
