The Kansas City Chiefs advanced to the AFC Championship Game with a 22-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, but it came at a cost.

Patrick Mahomes was ruled out with a concussion after taking a hit from Browns linebacker Mack Wilson in the third quarter. Mahomes stumbled as he rose to his feet and never returned to the game.

Wilson suggested he received threats for the play, explained he has "never been a dirty player in my life" and hoped the star quarterback would return for next week's game:

Mack Wilson @5mackwilson1

Never been a dirty player in my life. I just try my best to play fast and make plays. Don’t try to insult me & keep the threats to yourself. 💯

Mack Wilson @5mackwilson1

Prayers to @PatrickMahomes . I pray you back next week! Go be great like you have been! 🙏🏾❤️

Mahomes responded by saying it was "all good."

Patrick Mahomes II @PatrickMahomes

All good brother! 💪🏽 https://t.co/ORwLG6eFTV

Whether No. 15 can play in next Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills will be the biggest story in the lead-up to the contest. If he does, Kansas City will be in an ideal position to advance to a second consecutive Super Bowl.
