Fantasy Football Injury News
Patrick Mahomes practices fully on Wednesday
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday.
Despite suffering an ankle sprain in the divisional round, Mahomes was able to log a full practice on Wednesday. Earlier reports said they expected him to play in the conference championship, and full participation is a good sign of such. Mahomes said he was feeling good in a press conference as well.
A.J. Brown off Eagles’ injury report Wednesday
The Philadelphia Eagles did not list A.J. Brown (hip) on the team’s injury report on Wednesday.
Brown had been dealing with a hip injury that seemed to limit him in the divisional round of the playoffs to an extent. Heading into the conference championship, Brown is off the injury report and appears ready to play. Brown averaged 88 yards a game in the air during the regular season and will be important against the 49ers’ defense.

Mecole Hardman limited in practice Wednesday
Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (pelvis) was the only player on the team not to log a full practice, though he logged a limited practice after failing to practice last week.
Hardman has not played a game since Nov. 6 as he has dealt with an injury that has left him sidelined for an extended time. However, he has returned to practice, even just in a limited role. There’s a chance he could make his return, though his status should be monitored. In his absence, WR Kadarius Toney saw an increased role in the divisional round.
