Andy Reid press conference wrap: Mahomes for MVP, injuries, more

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid met with reporters for a press conference Monday and addressed plenty of topics surrounding his team’s 26-14 win over the Arizona Cardinals as well as the big showdown next Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams in Mexico City.

Reid began by discussing the situation surrounding the girlfriend of Patrick Mahomes, whose stepfather passed away on Sunday, and offered condolences for the family. Reid told reporters the situation shouldn’t affect Mahomes’ status for this week.

There was some talk from there about the game against the Cardinals, in particular how the defense played and what Reid thought about the offensive line. Reid also expressed some excitement over getting the chance to face the Rams in Mexico next week.

Reid in addition gave some brief injury news, saying there wasn’t anything of note to come from Sunday’s game and that Sammy Watkins and Anthony Hitchens, who were out Sunday, could be back on the field next Monday. 

Read on for a rundown of Reid’s comments from his press conference.
