After video of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes playing a pickup game of basketball gained lots of attention on Twitter, the team's general manager stepped in and said, "no more basketball for Pat", NFL.com is reporting. "The Kingdom can rest assured that we have that under control: No more basketball for Pat".
Veach said on Kansas City radio station 810 WHB on Thursday that he was anxious enough about the franchise quarterback risking an injury that he put in a call to Mahomes' agent, Leigh Steinberg.
Veach explained Mahomes is too competitive as a person to just play basketball without going too hard.

Meanwhile, Donald McCain has confirmed that the three cases previously detailed came from his yard in Cheshire. Horses in training are required to be vaccinated for equine influenza in Ireland under the Rules of Racing.
Added Veach: "We were able to nip that in the bud and we feel good about the plan of no basketball with Pat moving forward". He actually was in the office yesterday and we were joking about it. "He doesn't have that filter in his mind to just have fun and not take everything so competitively".
While it's certainly starting to seem like there's nothing Mahomes can't do, it's also abundantly clear there are things the Chiefs don't want the man likely to sign the league's first $200 million contract to do.
Kansas City finished last season with a 12-4 record and are projected to have the best odds at winning the Super Bowl next season.
