Thanks for the info but we already knew he was playing I hope the bills defense shows up like I no they can. And we need a great game from our offense 

yep.  Funny to think that some people still thought he wouldn’t play, even after the video from yesterday’s practice.

Shocker.   Underscores the incredible fallacy of the entire concussion protocol.

That's nice. It'll make it all the sweeter when the Bills beat the Chiefs this Sunday.

Has anyone ever cleared concussion protocol quicker????    But remember it was a PINCHED NERVE......

Josh Allen cleared the protocol in similar time.

So much for player safety huh Rodger? Not when the bottom line could be affected. Either way glad he’ll be out there but if the bills win everyone will say Mahomes wasn’t 100% and if the chiefs win they’ll say how tough mahomes is. Another week of no respect

Why doesn't anyone tell me anything around here, I am always the last to know  :w00t:

 

Because then you would not start your own thread on issues.  Ignorance is bliss.

Didn't Allen clear in one week last year?  Concussion against the Patriots and then cleared to play the Titans the next week.  I think we all expected Mahomes to play, regardless of what they labeled his injury as.  What's more concerning for the Chiefs, in my opinion, is his turf toe injury.  That can change his whole dynamic of throws on the run if he isn't as mobile outside the pocket as normal.  Send inside pressure and force him outside to keep that foot as a bigger factor in the game. 

Go Bills!

Didn't allen come back the next week last year when he got one vs the Pats?

 

Mahomes definitely looked worse. But whatever, I'm not worked about it. 

 

Bring him on.

He never had a concussion so I have no idea why he was even in it to begin with.

During every NFL game, spotters watch the players on the field. A few will be on the sidelines, and a few will watch in a booth from above. If they spot anything suspicious with a play or athlete, they call a timeout. Someone will escort the person off the field to receive an evaluation.

 

In addition to the spotters, each team has an assigned neurotrauma expert who monitors players from the sidelines. They help monitor and evaluate a player’s condition. Some signs this team looks for are loss of balance and loss of consciousness after a hit. They watch for signs of confusion, disorientation, head clutching, facial injuries, and slow movements following a hard-hitting play.

 

Whenever they spot these signs, the player will go to the medical tent, locker room, or hospital for further evaluation. That’s when the concussion protocol goes into effect for the athlete.
