Philly Legend, Ricky Waters The Eagles believe the quarterback is on the edge rather than a sick one Patrick Mahomes, who treats high ankle sprains. But, it’s razor close and the former NFL MVP is still incredibly dangerous!
“I guess you can say that [Eagles have QB advantage]But Mahomes, even with a sprained ankle, he’s playing, he’s still great!” Waters said. Babcock on top of that”TMZ Sports” TV show (Airs on weeknights FS1)
“That’s what’s so crazy about him. He’s a great quarterback and I think he’ll be fine because he’ll have some time to heal and I’m sure they’ll work that ankle all the way through. Game time.”
Of course, the 27-year-old was injured during the divisional round game against the Super Bowl champion Jaguars … and still managed to throw for 326 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Bengals. Mahomes also ran for crucial yards in the game’s waning moments, setting up the game-winning field goal.

Speaking of injury, Ricky says he’s impressed with Mahomes’ toughness … but at the end of the day, the 5x Pro Bowler played with the Eagles, so there’s no question who he’s rooting for come Super Sunday.
“The worst ankle sprain you can have is a high ankle sprain. [Mahomes] He is a warrior to do what he does and I love him too. I really do, so it’s really hard to go against him because I love him so much and I love how he plays, but you know, I have to go with my Eagles. You know I want to see the eagles fly, baby.”
