DENVER (AP) Struggling to straighten his right knee, Patrick Mahomes tossed his helmet to the side and covered his face with both hands.
The Kansas City quarterback was hurt on a sneak Thursday night against Denver.
Mahomes picked up a first down on fourth-and-short in the second quarter. Once the pile began to clear and Mahomes didn't jump up, his teammates immediately checked on him. Seeing his condition, receiver Tyreek Hill put his hands on his helmet in concern - a feeling shared by a legion of Chiefs fans. Mahomes is a big reason why Kansas City was a preseason favorite to reach its second straight AFC championship game.
