KANSAS CITY, Missouri (KLTV) - Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, after leading Kansas City to a win over New England Monday night, learned that Patriot Stephon Gilmore tested positive for COVID-19 after the game.  Mahomes embraced Gilmore and explains that moment.

“I mean obviously, knowing that I went up to him after the game just gave the high-five like I’ve done my whole career not thinking about it, a little bit of a mental lapse,” Mahomes said. “Just trying to show sportsmanship and stuff like that, but I feel like that the protocol in place are good. I trust that, wear my mask. Do whatever Rick and them say and then just trust in we don’t all know what’s happening in this world this time except the challenge every single day of being in the best place I can be to be available for the team.”
