When Kansas City head quarterback Patrick Mahomes struggled to stand during Sunday’s AFC playoff game, some of his teammates were not happy with Cleveland Browns linebacker Mack Wilson, as his tackle left the QB badly And wandered off.
After the game, former Alabama standout teammates came to his rescue, telling reporters that Wilson was not a dirty player. Wilson took to social media to defend himself and wished Mahomes well, and the quarterback responded: “All good, brother!”
Some prominent fans directed their anger towards Wilson, including Mahomes’ mother, who wanted to disqualify Wilson from the game.
Wilson responded with an explanation, which wanted to calm Randy Mahomes.
Although Patrick Mahomes left Sunday’s game midway through the third quarter, the Chiefs still beat the Browns 22-17 to end Wilson’s second NFL season.
Wilson started late in 2020.
When Wilson went down in practice on August 18 with a “quite hyperextended left knee”, Brown feared he would miss the 2020 season. The injury ended Wilson in the first two games of the regular season, and he played only six snaps in the third.
After that, Wilson played 14 games with eight of Cleveland’s 14 matches. Wilson ended up playing 35 percent of Brown’s defensive snacks. He made 39 tackles, one loss tackle and two pass breakups in 2020.
While Wilson played a smaller role for Brown in his second season than he might have expected before his injury, the former Carver-Montgomery star played a larger role than anticipated in his rookie season.
A fifth-round draft choice, Wilson entered the starting lineup, when Christian Kirksey was hurt in the second game of 2019. Wilson finished second with 944 defensive snacks and 82 tackles last season when he committed four tackles. The loss, a sack, two quarterback hits, seven pass breakups and a forced break.
The majors advanced to the AFC Championship Game as they wanted their second straight trip to the Super Bowl. Kansas City is scheduled to play Buffalo Bills on Sunday at 5:40 pm CST at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. CBS will reduce the game.
Head coach Andy Reid told reporters Monday that Mahomes was in the NFL’s concussion protocol.
“We will follow it and see how he looks here in the next two days,” Reid said. “… I just leave (athletic trainer) Rick (Burkholder) and the docks. Because of protocol, this is not a brainchild for coaching staff. You don’t need to think about it. I want you from a medical standpoint. Can’t tell where he is. I don’t know. “
