The prayers of Chiefs fans have been seemingly answered.
The balance of the Chiefs season and Super Bowl hopes hung in the balance of one MRI of the knee of superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes suffered a dislocated knee on a drawn up rush play on fourth down during the Chiefs game against the Broncos Thursday night.
It looks like he points at his right leg, and he reaches toward his knee a bit. Definitely looks hurt. pic.twitter.com/GEEQJgZDJg

Mahomes’ knee cap had to be set back into place on the field by trainers.

An MRI has now confirmed that there was no serious structural damage, with Mahomes likely able to forego surgery and return sometime this season.
The MRI has confirmed the #Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes suffered a dislocated kneecap, but not significant additional damage, sources tell me and @JamesPalmerTV. He’ll seek additional opinions to be sure. The plan is for him to return this season after a brief absence.
