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.

Mahomes suffered the injury on a quarterback sneak. He was helped off the field and was ruled out a short time later.

Mahomes was taken in for x-rays and was spotted walking under his own power after leaving the field.
