BRITTANY MATTHEWS has declared how “proud” she is of husband Patrick Mahomes as the Chiefs star received a key injury update.
Mahomes, 27, suffered an ankle knock during his team’s Divisional playoff win over Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday.

The 2018 NFL MVP limped through much of the contest, completing 22 of 30 attempts for 195 yards and two touchdowns.
Backup Chad Henne entered the game to throw another TD for the Chiefs, who ran out 27-20 winners.
But Mahomes’ injury has dominated the narrative as Kansas City eye up an AFC showdown with the Bengals next weekend.
Sharing a picture of the pair sharing a kiss following the game, she simply captioned it: “Proud [love emoji].”
Mahomes is confident that he will be fit and ready to face the Bengals next week.
He has now been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain and according to coach Andy Red is “day-to-day”.
Reid said: “He’s worked hard in the treatment and is doing OK.
“He told you guys. He mentioned to you that he’s going to play. That’s his mindset.
“Then we’ll just take it day by day and see how he does.”
But some fans weren’t convinced that their star man would be fit in time to be at his very best.
And they flocked onto social media to send their best to Mahomes for his recovery.
One wrote: “Difficult injury to recover from.”
Another added: “Praying for speedy recovery.”
While a third said: “There is no way he will be mobile in 6 days.”
And a fourth mused: “High ankle is usually out a couple weeks.”
Reid did however give fans hope, saying that Mahomes ankle sprain is not as severe as the one he suffered on Week 1 of the 2019 season.
In that instance, Mahomes fought through the pain and blitzed the Raiders for 443 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions.
