CINCINNATI — Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes appeared to suffer a concussion in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Browns, but that might not have been the case. 

According to Carrington Harrison of 610 SportsKC in Kansas City, Mahomes passed a concussion test after the game.

"Patrick passed all of his tests last night," a source told Harrison. "He didn’t actually hit his head, there was a nerve in his neck that got tweaked that made him out of it. He’s getting testing done on his neck/nerve today but did clear all tests last night.”

The team hasn't updated Mahomes' status, which is still up in the air, but this report bodes well for his chances of playing on Sunday against the Bills in the AFC Championship Game. 

There's a chance Mahomes was ruled out due to a pinched nerve, stinger, etc. A player can end up in concussion protocol for any of those injuries. 

He remains in the protocol on Monday according to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. 

Kansas City hung on to beat Cleveland without Mahomes, but it's tough to envision them taking out the Bills if he's out for the entire game. 

Kickoff is Sunday at 6:40 p.m. ET. Watch the hit below.
