Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) returns in third quarter

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a right ankle injury in the first quarter of the Chiefs' divisional playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday, and later left for the locker room with training staff before returning to action in the third quarter.

During the second quarter, the Chiefs announced the injury and listed Mahomes as questionable to return. But the former NFL MVP tossed warmup throws after halftime and then took the field with his teammates after the second-half kickoff.

On a first-down play from midfield, Mahomes fell awkwardly under pressure after a 4-yard completion to Blake Bell with 2:40 remaining in the first quarter.
