DENVER (CBS4) – Superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs was hurt on Thursday night during the game against the Denver Broncos. He won’t return.
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.
