Will Patrick Mahomes play this weekend?

Average stay in the protocol is 19 days and you rarely see an NFL player getting up wobbling like a fighter that just got KO'd .

Oher was in the protocol for like a year. How many others were in the protocol for months because of previous concussions? This is Mahomes’ first time in the concussion protocol and he’s already progressed far enough through it that he’s practicing tomorrow. He’s playing.

The question of whether he should is easier to me. 

Are you a doctor that has examined Mahomes? Why would you even think about whether he should play or not? None of us have any clue whether he should play.

I hope he does. I'd like to watch him. But, unless the concussion was misdiagnosed (which is possible) he really shouldn't.

Even if it was an actual concussion why is 7 days so unreasonable of a time for him to return? This 19 days keeps getting brought up but it’s a quite misleading stat. What’s the average time in the concussion protocol for first time concussions? My guess is it’s closer to 7 days. And if he’s passing all the tests this early, as has been reported, then he’s already much further along than most players who were in the protocol for longer than 7 days. All signs point to him playing. Of course it’s no guarantee, and it’s possible he could wake up Saturday morning with headaches and dizziness, but based on the info we have so far that seems quite unlikely.

Minimum medical suspension after any KO or TKO loss in the fight game is 45 days. There's a reason for that. There's probably more that we don't know about concussions than that we do. Most fighters don't get up after a KO/TKO wobbling around like a frat boy after a keg stand either.
