"I'm fine, Patricks fine, thanks for all the prayers!" Matthews tweeted. "WE STILL GOT A GAME TO WIN LETS GOOOOOO!!!"
Matthews — who is currently expecting her first child with Mahomes — also continued to live-tweet the sporting event, during which she showed her support to Chad Henne, the Kansas City Chiefs backup quarterback who replaced Mahomes for the remainder of the game.

During Sunday evening's divisional-round playoff game, Mahomes struggled to stand on his feet after Cleveland Browns' Mack Wilson tackled him to the ground. The athlete was helped off the field before he made his way to the locker room.
The Kansas City Chiefs confirmed on Twitter that the reigning Super Bowl MVP was "being evaluated for a concussion," before Henne, 35, replaced Mahomes.
On his own respective Twitter account, Mahomes also shared a message for fans, writing, "#HenneThingIsPossible," — a clear reference to Henne — before he responding to a tweet from Wilson, 22.
