KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was cleared Friday from the league's concussion protocol after his third consecutive day of practice and will be under center when Kansas City plays the Buffalo Bills in the AFC championship game.

Mahomes was hurt in the third quarter of the Chiefs' divisional-round win over Cleveland. He returned to take the majority of snaps in a light workout Wednesday, then did the same during the longest practice of the week Thursday, before team doctors and an independent neurologist gave him the green light following Friday's workout.

"The week has been a bunch of testing, a bunch of different things, to make sure I'm good to go and there's no lingering effects and things like that," Mahomes said. "Everything has been good. I went through everything; three or four different doctors have said everything is looking good."
