Patrick Mahomes exits game with knee injury

Recommended Posts

Quote

It is possible to return in three to four weeks after swelling subsides and strength returns. But even with a brace, the risk of re-dislocation is high, and the risk of subluxaton (slipping transiently out of groove) is even higher.

 
 

Trent Williams tried to play through this injury and couldn’t. Matt Stafford had a similar injury in 2009 and returned in three weeks. He did have surgery in the offseason. But Stafford is more of a pocket QB. Mahomes would have to alter his game to improve his chances to finish the season without surgery.

Fortunately, the other ligaments are fine.

The risk is certainly higher and KC wants to avoid an RG3 situation. A second dislocation or any kind of compromise to the knee would result in a more serious injury and that's the interesting point of contention here.

I’d shut him down if I was KC. He’s the most valuable player in the league. You can return after a few weeks but I’m reading there a risk for more damage. Plus he wouldn’t be able to scramble and make crazy plays anymore. So while I’m sure he’d be very good, he’d be a much more limited version of himself.

If re-injury is that serous, shelf him for the year, and in meantime trade for Foles. He'll shine w/ Reid, and then they'll be able to trade Foles (even w/ his contract) for even more next year to some desperate suitor after he puts up great numbers.

why do mri's always happen the next day?

Swelling and doing it at your home facility?   Just a guess and probably wrong in both accounts...

Their back up looked good. If they can go 4-4 the next 8 weeks with a back up and end up 10-6 to make a play off run jd roll the dice on that.

Awful news.

Definitely agree that he should be shut down. Don't rush him back, there is absolutely no need. With a QB like Mahomes, your window is 15 years not 1 year.

Get it right over the next 9 months and go again next year.
