Mahomes needed assistance off the field following the hit in the second half of Sunday’s game but was seen walking on his own after being evaluated in the medical tent a short time later.
The Chiefs QB was getting wrapped up in the pocket when he was hit by a Titans’ defender as he attempted to make a throw. Watch below:
Sideline CBS reporter Evan Washburn said during the broadcast that Mahomes passed the Concussion Protocol, as independent NFL reporter Dov Kleiman tweeted.
OutKick contributor ProFootballDoc agrees, tweeting that Mahomes remaining on the sidelines is an indication he is not in Concussion Protocol — NFL protocols state a player in Concussion Protocol can’t stay on the sidelines.
Stepping in for Mahomes was 14th-year quarterback Chad Henne, who enters his fourth season with the Chiefs in 2021.
Henne made his first-career postseason appearance in the AFC Divisional Round against the Cleveland Browns in January, where he completed 6-of-8 passes for 66 yards and added 12 rushing yards to help the Chiefs advance to the AFC Championship Game for the third-straight year.
The Titans (5-2) went on to beat the Chiefs (3-4) 27-3 at Nissan Stadium on Sunday.
The Chiefs will next face the New York Giants on the road in Week 8 on Nov. 1 with kickoff set for 7:15 p.m. CDT.
