DENVER — Struggling to straighten his right knee, Patrick Mahomes tossed his helmet to the side and covered his face with both hands.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was hurt on a sneak Thursday night against the Denver Broncos.

Mahomes stayed down on the field for quite some time after picking up a first down on fourth-and-short in the second quarter.

His teammates checked on him, with receiver Tyreek Hill putting his hands on his helmet in concern. Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. came over, too, and shook Mahomes’ hand.

A cart was summoned to take him away, but Mahomes put an arm around each trainer and made his way off the field. Mahomes, who entered the game with a sore ankle, then slowly made his way into the locker room.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wrote on his Twitter account: “Praying for you bro.”

Mahomes has thrown 15 touchdown passes and one interception this season. The reigning MVP was 10 of 11 for 76 yards and a 125.8 rating before his injury.

Matt Moore replaced Mahomes.
