Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes II suffered an injury on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos. He left the field in the second quarter with a right knee injury.

According to Dr. Mark Adickes, Mahomes suffered a patella (knee cap) dislocation. The doctor says that it can be treated without surgery and a brace.

However, an MRI on Friday will determine the severity of the injury. Dr. Adickes says that he could miss a few weeks with this injury.

If it is more severe, according to the MRI, this will be devastating news for the Chiefs. It would mean a season-ending injury, according to Dr. Adickes. It would also mean that Mahomes would need surgery.

The 2018 NFL MVP went 10 of 11 for 76 yards before the injury. He also threw a touchdown.

Mahomes hit rookie Mecole Hardman for a 21-yard touchdown reception.
