Per the Chiefs, Mahomes has been ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Mahomes left the contest after being tackled by Browns linebacker Mack Wilson on an option attempt on a third-and-1 on the Kansas City 48-yard line. As he attempted to stand up, the 2018 NFL MVP was visibly dizzy and initially struggled to remain upright.

After being helped off the field, Mahomes was sent to the locker room for further evaluation. Veteran Chad Henne proceeded to replace the reigning Super Bowl MVP at quarterback and helped the Chiefs finish an 11-play, 60-yard drive that ended with Harrison Butker kicking a 33-yard field goal to extend Kansas City's lead to 22-10.

Prior to leaving the game, Mahomes had completed 21 of his 30 pass attempts for 255 yards and one touchdown, in addition to rushing for 14 yards and another score. On the season, the Texas Tech product completed 66.3 percent of his pass attempts for 4,740 yards, 38 touchdowns and six interceptions.

The winner of Sunday's matchup between the Browns and Chiefs will advance to next Sunday's AFC Championship Game, where they will face the Buffalo Bills. For all the latest from Sunday's divisional round matchup, follow our live blog.
