Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday in the Divisional Round to advance to the AFC Championship Game for the fifth consecutive season.

Their star quarterback, however, took a hit to the right leg early in the divisional game and was clearly hurt.

Mahomes briefly remained in the game, but eventually had to leave for the locker room, where he received negative X-rays. He returned for the second half and played through the remainder of the matchup, helping lead the Chiefs to the 27-20 win.


What is Mahomes’ injury status now?

According to ESPN, Mahomes will undergo an MRI on Sunday to have further information on the extent of the injury.

The 27-year-old quarterback said post-game that there is no official prognosis and asserted he will be good to go for the AFC Championship Game.

“They haven’t diagnosed anything yet, but I’ll be good to go [for next week],” he said.

Kansas City does not need to release an injury report until Wednesday. Before then, it is expected to hear from head coach Andy Reid. And for now, how much practice Mahomes gets in across Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be a strong indication of whether he will be able to play next week in the AFC Championship Game.
