Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes injured his right ankle late in the first quarter of their divisional matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday afternoon.
Mahomes went down after trying to complete a pass between two Jaguars defenders near midfield at Arrowhead Stadium, and came up limping after one of those defenders landed directly onto his ankle.

Mahomes stayed in the game, but he was noticeably in pain through the rest of the quarter. He was hopping trying to hand the ball off on the next play, and later threw a short pass off of one foot to tight end Travis Kelce to end the quarter.
Mahomes hopped to the bench at the break, where Chiefs training staff taped up his ankle. He then returned to start the second quarter, though their drive was cut short. The Chiefs then settled for a 50-yard field goal, which gave them a 10-7 lead.
