In a potentially major development in the AFC playoff picture, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes left Thursday night's game over the Denver Broncos with a right knee injury.
According to NFL reporter James Palmer, Mahomes suffered at least a dislocated kneecap. More testing will be done to determine if there is any ligament damage.
Patrick Mahomes suffered a patella (kneecap) dislocation. I’m told there was no break. MRI will reveal if there is any ligament damage.
