Myles Garrett Fires Back At Troubling Claim Made By Travis Kelce of Taunting of Patrick Mahomes’ Injury
Patrick Mahomes left Sunday’s playoff game against Cleveland with what appeared to be a concussion. After the game, we found out from Travis Kelce that some Browns players taunted him after the injury.
“That’s what we do. That’s what we do,” some Browns players said, according to Kelce.
Myles Garrett disputes that claim.
Cleveland’s All-Pro defensive lineman says that none of his teammates were going out there looking to injure anybody.
“I want to say that nobody on our team is head hunting, going after guys or trying to hurt a guy, no matter how good he is,” Garrett said, per Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan. “We are praying for [Mahomes’] recovery and praying for his success. He has always been a quality guy and the way he does stuff for the community. He is a leader on and off the field that you appreciate seeing, especially from a guy of that caliber and just always trying to be a positive force everywhere he goes.”
Garrett made sure to relay that he and Kelce are cool, but needed to clear things up.
“Some of the guys felt like that,” Garrett said. “I know Travis felt like that, and I am cool with Travis. He is a good guy. Hung out with him a couple of times in the offseason. I don’t ever want him to feel like my guys or my team is out here trying to injure somebody or put them out of the game.”
