Kansas City Chiefs (and anyone who bet on them) held their collective breath on Sunday when in the second quarter Patrick Mahomes was tackled from behind, re-injuring his already beat up right ankle.

As Mahomes limped off the field in obvious pain, many wondered if he would return to the game.

Not only did he return, from that play forward Patrick Mahomes went 13 of 14 for 93 yards with two touchdown passes.

Even more crazy, Mahomes had rushes of 14 yards and 26 yards to keep drives alive, leading to several fans referring to him as “Perc” Mahomes.

On Tuesday, NFL Films released mic’d up footage of Patrick Mahomes before and after aggravating his high ankle sprain which shows what a freaking warrior the man is.

In the video, Mahomes can clearly be heard moaning in serious pain as he hobbles off the field and tries to fight through it on the sideline bench.

Later Mahomes can be heard telling his coaches, “I’ll be fine… I’m good.”

“I knew I wasn’t coming out of this game,” he told the media after the game. “I re-aggravated it a little bit… I’ll worry about that in the offseason.”

Mahomes added that he plans to take “a few weeks off,” but will “for sure be ready for OTAs and everything like that.”

“Obviously we will to continue to rehab, continue the treatment that we were doing, just give it some rest. I mean, I think the best thing for it is going to be rest,” he added.

No wonder none other than Peyton Manning already thinks 27-year-old Patrick Mahomes has already done enough to earn enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Two NFL MVP Awards, two Super Bowl wins, two Super Bowl MVP Awards, a 64-16 regular season record, a 11-3 post-season record, and five Pro Bowl appearances in just six years will get you that kind of honor.
