A recent ankle injury has slowed the gunslinger down, but it was a knee injury that knocked him out of the game close to the Broncos end zone in the first half.

Holmes walked by himself to the locker room and backup quarterback Matt Moore took over in the huddle in his place.

The injury happened during a Chiefs drive in the second quarter at Empower Field at Mile High.
