Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes took a knee to his head during his team’s 27-3 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Despite clearing the NFL’s concussion protocol, he was pulled in the fourth quarter toward the end of the game as coach Andy Reid believed the quarterback needed a break.

Mahomes was sacked from behind by Denico Autry, when Titans defender Jeffery Simmons then accidentally kneed him in the head. The 26-year-old needed help getting up, but he was able to leave the field without assistance.

The quarterback spent a few minutes getting examined by a head trauma specialist. He then spoke to Reid after clearing the concussion protocol.

The game was Mahomes’ first without a touchdown pass since the Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay. He lost a fumble and completed 20-of-35 passes for 206 yards, one interception, and six carries for 35 yards.

Mahomes said after the game that he was “fine now.”

“It was fourth down so I was kind of getting held up and instead of going down I tried to throw the ball and obviously you all saw the hit,” Mahomes said. “I kinda took my time getting up, but I felt fine. But obviously you kind of go through those things, the protocol things, but I did everything I needed to do to be here right now.

“I have full memory of the play,” he continued. “You get hit pretty hard, sometimes you just want to lay there, and plus it was fourth down. I knew the game was at the end there, so it was a disappointing day and a disappointing way to end it.”

Kansas City fell to 3-4 with the loss.
