The Kansas City Chiefs were dealt a huge blow late in the first quarter of their game on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns when their leading receiver Dwayne Bowe went down with a rib injury.

His return to the game was announced as questionable, according to the press box announcement, before eventually being ruled out for the remainder of the game.

After the play, in which Bowe apparently took a knee to the back, he was able to walk off the field under his own power, but was seen vomiting on the sidelines, visibly shaken up.

Coming into the game, Bowe had 57 receptions for 731 yards and three touchdowns this season, and had already caught two passes for 70 yards Sunday, including a 47-yard catch early on.

The wide receiver went to the locker room to receive treatment..

The Chiefs also lost Jamaal Charles to a rib injury in the first half, but he returned to the game a little while later. Charles ran 80 yards on the first play of the game for a touchdown to give Kansas City the early lead.
