Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes came into Thursday Nights game with an ankle injury, and left the game in the second quarter with a knee injury. The Chiefs had been struggling losing two in a row at home before defeating the Broncos Thursday night, but now they might be without their star player for an extended amount of time. 

According to reports Mahomes has suffered a right patellar kneecap dislocation. How long he will be sidelined still remains to be seen. Patrick is going in for MRI’s Friday to see if there is any ligament damage  There are two scenarios that will follow as a result of the scans.

  1. No ligament damage for Mahomes. This would be best case scenario for the Chiefs. He could feasibly return to the playing field within 3-5 weeks. 
  2. There is ligament damage for Mahomes. If this is the case, he likely will be out for the season. 

Mahomes is remaining optimistic as he tweeted after the game that “everything is looking good so far”. Once the results of the MRI come in, we will update the status of Mahomes recovery time. 

UPDATE: The best case scenario is true. Mahomes did not suffer severe ligament damage and is only expected to miss 3 weeks.
