UPDATE: An MRI confirmed that Mahomes dislocated his knee, but that it was the “best-case scenario,” according to Adam Schefter.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a brutal knee injury Thursday night in a win over the Denver Broncos.

The NFL sensation was knocked out of the game after injuring his knee while attempting a quarterback sneak on 4th and 1. Now, we might have an idea just how badly hurt he is. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to ESPN, a source said that the young phenom quarterback suffered a dislocated right kneecap against the Broncos.

Adam Schefter also tweeted following the game that Mahomes could miss only a few weeks, but the worst case scenario is “downright dreary.” MRI results will indicate which road the Chiefs superstar is about to go down.

You can watch a video of doctors appearing to pop his knee back in place below.

This is just an awful situation for the Chiefs, and there’s no other way to describe it. The team rides and dies with Mahomes.

Yes, they won last night after he got knocked out, but that won’t continue for long without him. If Mahomes misses the rest of the season, you can go ahead and stick a fork in their playoff hopes.

As a football fan, let’s hope he’s back sooner than later. You never want to see anybody get hurt, especially one of the biggest stars in the game.
