NFL Hall Of Famer Rips Chiefs After Patrick Mahomes' Injury
The NFL has a serious problem. While the game has always been dangerous and will continue to be dangerous, the 2019 season brought a new challenge for the league.
Star quarterbacks are dropping at a rate unforeseen in league history.
On Thursday night, Patrick Mahomes joined a list of Cam Newton, Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger - among others - who will miss time this season with significant injuries.
Mahomes ran a quarterback sneak in an attempt to pick up a first down. After the play, he remained on the ground as team doctors appeared to "relocate" his dislocated kneecap.
He eventually walked off the field under his own power, but had a significant limp.
Fans were not happy with the call to run Mahomes on a quarterback sneak - which resulted in his injury. An NFL Hall of Famer agrees.
Former star wide receiver Cris Carter said, "Under no circumstances should Mahomes be running a quarterback sneak."

He has a point.
Mahomes entered the game with an ankle injury that hampered him in the team's back-to-back home losses. Running him on a quarterback sneak doesn't seem like the safest option with a quarterback who's already hurt.
Now, the only reason we're talking about this is because Mahomes suffered the injury. If nothing happened, it wouldn't be a topic of conversation.
As it stands, Mahomes is set to undergo an MRI this morning.
