Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes appeared to reinjure his right ankle and came up hobbling late in the second quarter of Super Bowl LVII on Sunday night in Glendale, Ariz.
Mahomes was scrambling on a third-down play when he was tackled around the ankles by Philadelphia Eagles linebacker T.J. Edwards with 1:33 remaining in the half. He got up limping and struggled to put weight on the ankle while leaving the field and was in visible pain on the Kansas City bench.
When the half ended, Mahomes was limping while jogging off the field.
Mahomes sustained a high ankle sprain against the Jacksonville Jaguars in an AFC Divisional game on Jan. 21 and briefly left the game in favor of Chad Henne before returning. He played the entire game eight days later when the Chiefs beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.
Philadelphia led Kansas City 24-14 at halftime. Mahomes completed 8 of 13 passes for 89 yards and one touchdown and added two rushes for 11 yards in the half.
