NFL fans have fears over Patrick Mahomes’ injury status for Week 9 after the quarterback was spotted with a strapped-up hand on Friday.
The Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback hurt his non-throwing hand in the team’s 24-9 loss to the Denver Broncos last weekend.

Mahomes had his left hand bandaged late in the loss after his index finger got stepped up.
The two-time MVP also dealt with the flu during the game.
He turned the ball over three times (two interceptions, one fumble) and didn’t record a touchdown.
After the loss, the Chiefs fell to 6-2 on the season.
On Wednesday, Mahomes was able to practice in full.
Then, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said to Fox Kansas City that Mahomes was feeling better and that his injury was “more contusions and scratches, cuts than anything.”
Kansas City made the trip to Germany on Friday where they will face the 6-2 Miami Dolphins in Week 9 at 9:30 am ET.
And the Chiefs practiced for the matchup on German soil.
Mahomes was able to log a full practice but was still seen with his hand strapped up.
NFL fans took to social media with panic over the two-time Super Bowl champion’s injury.
One wrote “This is not good” while another stated: “Mahomes can’t miss this game.”
Mahomes is expected to start on Sunday.
He’s thrown for 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions for the season.
His less-than-stellar stats have been comparable to that of Washington Commanders signal-caller Sam Howell.
Mahomes has completed 209 of 304 passes and the 23-year-old Howell has completed 206 of 308 passes.
