Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said his left ankle, injured in the opening game and aggravated in Sunday’s loss to the Colts, was “not perfect” but it won’t stop him from playing in this week’s game against the Houston Texans.
Also, tight end Travis Kelce speaks to his push and then hug of offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy in that game.
Finally, it was media day for Kansas basketball, so we share what coach Bill Self had to say about his team’s mental toughness in the face of NCAA clouds this season.
