The Kansas City Chiefs won their Thursday Night Football matchup against the Denver Broncos, but it came at a big price as Patrick Mahomes converted a quarterback sneak on 4th-and-1 and suffered a knee injury that caused medical personnel to pop it back in place.

The plan is for Mahomes to get an MRI on Friday to determine there’s any ligament damage.
