The 2019 season hasn't been kind to NFL quarterbacks through the first seven weeks.

Drew Brees, Nick Foles, Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton and now Patrick Mahomes have all suffered significant injuries - leaving backup quarterbacks to fill the void.

In a season where injuries appear to be worse than usual - at least to the face of the league - Thursday night's is arguably the worst for the league as a whole. Mahomes, the most electric quarterback in the NFL, suffered a dislocated patella (kneecap) during the game against the Broncos.

Trainers "re-located" his dislocated kneecap and he was able to limp off the field.

After the 30-6 win, Mahomes had a message for his team and the fans who prayed for a quick recovery.

"Awesome team win! Love my brothers! Thank you for all the prayers! Everything looking good so far!" he said on Twitter.

ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed the "best-case scenario" is for Mahomes to miss three weeks with the injury.

He's set to undergo an MRI on Friday that will reveal the extent of the damage. However, all signs point to a more positive outcome than what looked imaginable when Mahomes first suffered the injury.

Stay tuned for the latest on Mahomes' injury.
