Latest on Patrick Mahomes, other injuries for Super Bowl LVII originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
And then there were two.
After 271 regular season games, six wild card contests, four divisional round tilts and two conference championship games, the remaining two teams on the road to the Vince Lombardi Trophy are hoping to be as healthy as possible for the Super Bowl.
For the Kansas City Chiefs, they are looking to get Patrick Mahomes rested over the next two weeks. The NFL MVP frontrunner suffered a high ankle sprain in the divisional round against the Jacksonville Jaguars and even exited that contest for a stretch. He played the second half of that game and pushed through the injury in the AFC Championship Game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
On the other side, the Philadelphia Eagles had all 22 starters available for their NFC Championship Game demolition of the San Francisco 49ers. One of those starters exited the game and did not return, though.
