Patrick Mahomes Suffers Right Knee Injury

Oct 17, 2019 9:31 PM

Patrick Mahomes suffered what appeared to be a serious right knee injury during the first half of the Kansas City Chiefs' Week 7 game at the Denver Broncos. Mahomes was able to walk off the field on his own power.

Dr. Mark Adickes believed it was a patella (knee cap) dislocation. The treatment could be for Mahomes to sit out for a weeks, but he could also have season-ending surgery with an MRI determining the course of action.

The early reports indicate Mahomes does not have a fracture.

Mahomes won the NFL MVP in 2018.

"I don't know yet. I don't know yet," Shurmur said when asked about Barkley's status for Week 5.
