Patrick Mahomes clears concussion protocol

Two Bills players are listed as "questionable" to play on Sunday in the AFC Championship Game

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes made the announcement himself on Friday afternoon that he has cleared the National Football League's concussion protocol and will be ready to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Buffalo Bills.

Mahomes had been a limited participant in practice this week while working through the five steps of the league's protocol after he left last Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Mahomes has also been dealing with a nagging toe injury that has hampered his play recently, but that will not keep him from playing for the chance to return to the Super Bowl for a second-consecutive year.

For the Bills, wide receiver Gabriel Davis and defensive tackle Vernon Butler are both questionable to play in Sunday's game, as they were able to practice on a limited basis on Friday. No other players on the active roster carry any injury designation on Friday's injury report, meaning they are all available to play.

The Bills play the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Sunday at 6:40 p.m. EST. Bills pregame coverage on WGR begins at 1 p.m. EST.
