Patrick Mahomes Injures Knee, Leaves Chiefs' Win vs. Broncos in Second Quarter

Patrick Mahomes ruled out vs Broncos with knee injury

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes exited the Chiefs win over the Broncos on Thursday after suffering a knee injury in the second quarter.

Mahomes suffered a dislocated patella before exiting the game, per the NFL Network's James Palmer. Mahomes did not break any bones, but the Chiefs will not know the extent of the injury until the third-year signal-caller undergoes an MRI on Friday.

Mahomes went down with the injury following a fourth-down quarterback sneak and looked to be in obvious pain. Mahomes was tended to by trainers on the field before walking off with them into the Chiefs' locker room.

Kansas City's QB told head coach Andy Reid he would be "fine" despite the injury, according to FOX's Erin Andrews. Mahomes added that everything was "looking good so far" in a tweet after the game.

Mahomes was taken in for X-rays but was promptly ruled out for the remainder of the game. He was 10-of-11 for 76 yards and a touchdown before his exit.

Matt Moore took over under center for the Chiefs.
