Chiefs CB Deandre Baker carted off after ugly leg injury

Patrick Mahomes won't suit up for the Chiefs in Week 17 since Kansas City has already locked up the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC, while the Chargers look to end the season on a high note with four-straight wins.

Cornerback Deandre Baker got his first playing time on defense since joining the Chiefs on Sunday, but his day came to an untimely end.

Baker suffered a gruesome looking leg injury on a Justin Herbert incompletion early in the third quarter. He remained down for quite a while before being put on a stretcher that was loaded onto a large cart so he could be taken off the field.

Baker signed with the Chiefs practice squad after armed robbery charges against him were dropped in November. He was a Giants first-round pick in 2019, but released by the team after those charges were initially filed.

The Chiefs still trail the Chargers 24-14, but the outcome will have no impact on their playoff future. They’re locked into the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
