Patrick Mahomes suffers leg injury early in divisional round

Patrick Mahomes was absolutely surgical on the Kansas City Chiefs’ first drive against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the divisional round. Mahomes did what he does, driving his team down the field for an easy touchdown.

But on Kansas City’s second drive of the game, a pall was cast over Arrowhead Stadium. With 2:40 left in the first quarter, Mahomes found himself pinned between two Jacksonville defenders — edge-rusher Arden Key, and defensive tackle Corey Peters. As Mahomes went to the ground, Key rolled up on Mahomes’ right ankle, and Mahomes was in obvious pain. Based on the angle of Mahomes’ right leg, his knee may have been affected as well.

On the next play, a simple handoff to running back Jerick McKinnon, Mahomes struggled to stay upright, one-hopping his way through the play.

This will obviously bear monitoring through the game.
