You could immediately tell that Patrick Mahomes wasn’t right as soon as he tried to stand up on the field after a collision this evening, while he was officially ruled out of the game shortly afterwards.

The actual collision is confusing because it’s not like he takes a direct shot to the head, but it does look like he’s smacked by the forearm coming up and then the ground on the way back down:

It was awful viewing afterwards as he wobbled about trying to get up and you could see he wasn’t there at all, but it’s absolutely going to provoke a week of speculation about his status.

If he’s properly concussed then his safety has to come first, but the Chiefs also look unlikely to win without him so you worry there will be pressure on him to come back.
