San Francisco 49ers free safety Jimmie Ward suffered an injury in the first quarter of Super Bowl 54 on a big hit of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs QB took off for the end zone but Ward got a big hit on him to force a fumble out of bounds.

Ward was slow getting up, but returned to the game after the commercial break.
