Will Patrick Mahomes start for the Chiefs in AFC Championship Game?

Former Buffalo Bills Defensive End Marcellus Wiley made his weekly appearance on the FS1’s Speak For Yourself segment alongside co-host Emmanuel Acho.

The former player-turned-analyst- his 2 cents on the Patrick Mahomes concussion injury ahead of Sunday’s AFC Championship game.

He said, “Look at Patrick Mahomes’ last game. If he would have walked in there with zero concerns, he didn’t walk out with zero concerns…

“Let’s just be real about that. I am concerned about him. He’s compromised right now. Whatever you want to say about him, the concussion, the neck injury, the nerve injury, his foot/toe injury, whatever you want to say, he’s not at full strength.”

“But I guess you can feel better because no one is at full strength this time in the playoffs. With that said, he’s facing a team who defensively are at full strength…of the four remaining defenses, they’re the best in terms of scoring defense,” Wiley said on the show.
