NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes wasn’t made available to the media after Sunday’s 26-14 win over the Arizona Cardinals due to a family emergency—Mahomes’ longtime girlfriend, Brittany Matthews, lost her stepfather during the game.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid passed along his condolences on behalf of the organization on Monday.

“Just a quick word on Patrick, on his girlfriend Brittany’s stepfather, Paul,” Reid said. “We’re sorry to hear about what took place [Sunday]. Our prayers and blessings are with the family. I’ve talked to Patrick, and they’re doing well for the circumstance that took place. As they go through this mourning period, prayers and thoughts are with them.”

Reid said the circumstances shouldn’t affect Mahomes’ preparation for the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night. Mahomes was in the Chiefs’ facility on Monday morning.


Editor’s note: The thoughts, prayers and sympathies of all of us here at Arrowhead Pride go out to Mahomes, Matthews and their families during this time.
