The Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback, Patrick Mahomes’ right ankle, was looking fine until he started limping on the field. Arizona’s State Farm Stadium witnessed a Super Bowl game on February 12, 2023, against the Chiefs and the Eagles. The incident occurred in the second quarter when Eagles linebacker T.J. Edwards tackled Mahomes, causing his right foot to bear the impact. Mahomes revealed in a post game interview that he re-aggravated a high-ankle sprain (Pedal Ankle Sprain Grade 3) he had suffered on January 21, 2023.

The reason for it being the most-injury prone was recently revealed by the Stadium’s groundskeeper, Zachary Longenecker. He informed that some Raiders’ players prefer shorter grass for quickness, which potentially increases injury risks due to reduced space between players and the playing surface.
