KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Patrick Mahomes did not return to Sunday’s Chiefs-Browns playoff game after he left with a concussion.

Mahomes was tackled while attempting to pick up a first down, and was taken to the locker room after the play.

Back-up Chad Henne replaced Mahomes as the Chiefs’ quarterback. He completed a fourth down pass to Tyreek Hill with 1:14 left in the game to seal the victory for the Chiefs.

Kansas City will face the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game Sunday. Mahomes’ status for the game is unknown.
