Mahomes (undisclosed) went to the locker room during the third quarter of Sunday's divisional-round game against the Browns, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes struggled to get to his feet and was visibly wobbly as he was assisted to the sidelines by the Chiefs' medical staff. Earlier in the contest, he appeared to hurt his toe, getting evaluated in the sideline tent at least one time, but he continued to gut it out. The nature of the current concern is unknown, but Mahomes may be under evaluation for a concussion. Chad Henne took over the reins of the offense for Kansas City.

Mahomes is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes rested Kansas City's regular-season finale against the Chargers and he then got the benefit of a first-round playoff bye, so he'll be fresh for Sunday's home matchup against the rising Browns. Opposing cornerbacks Denzel Ward (illness) and Kevin Johnson (illness) both came of the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, so Mahomes will face the challenge of taking on a fully healthy secondary while also avoiding a pass rush led by Myles Garrett (shoulder).

Mahomes is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes will sit this one out, with Kansas City having secured a first-round playoff bye. Filling in for him as the team's starting QB on Sunday will be Chad Henne, with Matt Moore set to serve as his backup in Week 17.

Coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that Mahomes will sit out Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes will get a week of rest with the Chiefs already having secured the AFC's No. 1 playoff seed, allowing Chad Henne to draw the start. Reid said he'll sit some of the Chiefs' other key regulars as well, so players like Tyreek Hill (hamstring), Travis Kelce and Chris Jones also seem destined to miss the regular-season finale as the Chiefs prioritize health above all else heading into the postseason.

Coach Andy Reid said Monday that "there's a good chance" Chad Henne starts Sunday's game against the Chargers rather than Mahomes, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
The 14-1 Chiefs have already clinched the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs by virtue of Sunday's win over the Falcons, so the team realistically could opt to not risk Mahomes' health in a meaningless regular-season finale. It also seems plausible that Kansas City's other key starters could receive an extra week of rest. If the star quarterback indeed sits Week 17, he'll wrap up the 2020 regular season with 4,740 passing yards and an impressive 38:6 TD:INT.

Mahomes completed 24 of 44 pass attempts for 278 yards, throwing two touchdowns and one interception while gaining 21 rushing yards on three carries during Sunday's 17-14 win against the Falcons.
EDGE Analysis
Despite a loss, Atlanta's defense should give itself a pat on the back for a marvelous job in containing the explosive Mahomes. The reigning Super Bowl MVP was held to a season-low 79.6 passer rating by the Falcons, while Kansas City's 17 points fell well below the team's previous 2020 single-game worst of 22. Though it was a relatively quiet fantasy week by Mahomes' standards, the 25-year-old was still capable of delivering Andy Reid his first 14-win regular season over 22 years as an NFL head coach. The Chiefs now roll into a Week 17 matchup against the Chargers having clinched the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Mahomes may therefore be sidelined as Kansas City aims to keep the star quarterback healthy for another run at the Lombardi Trophy.

Mahomes completed 26 of 47 passes for 254 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 32-29 win over the Saints. He also rushed for 37 yards on seven carries.
EDGE Analysis
His passing yardage total was below his usual standards, and he committed two fumbles (losing one) while facing consistent pressure from the New Orleans pass rush, but Mahomes still picked his spots and threw at least three TDs for the sixth time this season. He'll take a scintillating 36:5 TD:INT into Week 16's meeting with a Falcons secondary that just gave up 390 yards to Tom Brady.

Mahomes completed 24 of 34 passes for 393 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 33-27 win over the Dolphins. He added nine yards on five rushing attempts.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes was picked off on a tipped screen pass attempt to end Kansas City's opening drive, then took a 30-yard sack on third down to cap the next possession before being intercepted again on the Chiefs' third drive. Despite the slow start, he still finished the first half with 172 yards and a touchdown, which was scored by Travis Kelce from six yards out to give the Chiefs a 14-10 halftime lead. Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill on a 44-yard deep ball to stretch Kansas City's lead on the first possession of the second half and ultimately did enough to lead his team to victory in an uncharacteristically error-filled performance. The star quarterback will need to clean up the turnovers in Week 15, as the Chiefs face a much tougher road test in New Orleans.

Mahomes completed 25 of 40 pass attempts for 318 yards and a touchdown, adding 26 more yards on four carries in a 22-16 win over the Broncos on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes and Co. were able to will their way to a narrow victory over the now 4-8 Broncos, but things were looking bleak until the fourth quarter of what should have been a lopsided victory on paper. The 25-year-old phenom has only had two games this season in which he was limited to single-digit scores, and both of those have come against the sub-.500 Broncos. Denver's defense is no pushover, but Mahomes has seemed to dismantle any top-tier defensive unit put in his way. The good news for the signal caller's managers is that the Chiefs won't have to face the Broncos again this fantasy season. Next week's opponent, the Miami Dolphins, are no pushovers defensively either, but Mahomes is about as "must-start" as they come these days.

Mahomes completed 37 of 49 passes for 462 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Chiefs' 27-24 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 28 yards and lost a fumble.
EDGE Analysis
The reigning Super Bowl MVP was on fire from the opening gun, posting a 229-yard tally in the first quarter alone. Mahomes comfortably got there with the help of touchdown strikes of 75 and 44 yards to Tyreek Hill in that opening period, and while less prolific in the second half after Kansas City had built up a lead, he still connected with Hill one final time from 20 yards away at the 7:04 mark of the third quarter. Mahomes then gained some valuable yards with his legs on the Chiefs' final clock-killing drive, capping off what turned out to be a relatively hard-fought victorious duel with the legendary Tom Brady. Mahomes has now thrown for over 400 yards in two of his last four games, and he's recorded no fewer than 348 passing yards in any contest during that span. Moreover, he'll head into a Week 13 Sunday night divisional battle against the Broncos with a four-game multi-touchdown streak in tow as well.
