Coming into the game I mentioned how Patrick Mahomes health has been a serious issue for the Chiefs in recent weeks. After the Broncos defense held up on third down following a questionable fake punt, Andy Reid dialed up a sneak. It blew up in his face.

During halftime this tweet hit my timeline. According to David Chao it looks like Patrick Mahomes may have dislocated his right patella kneecap. The knee was locked where he could not bend or straighten it.

This story will be updated as we find out more. Right now it looks like the Chiefs will have Matt Moore under center for the foreseeable future.

UPDATE:

It sounds like Mahomes will miss less than a month.
