Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has delivered good news for K.C. fans and a negative update for those who root for any other NFL team.
Mahomes has been recovering from offseason surgery to repair an injury to the big toe of his left foot that he aggravated in January but was said to be "a full-go" in organized team activities earlier this spring. On Thursday, the one-time regular-season and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player told reporters he's not expecting any setbacks into the summer and fall months.
"I don’t see any problems moving forward," Mahomes explained, per Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk. "Obviously, I’ll have to continue with the rehab, continue to work on those things — strengthen it, do all that different type of stuff. But I feel like I had a good OTAs, a good minicamp. I was able to move around, scramble around and do the things that I needed to do."
By all indications, Mahomes was always on track to be ready for training camp sessions and was fit enough to land on the cover of "Madden 22" alongside seven-time champion signal-caller Tom Brady. The 25-year-old should be available for preseason action, but it remains to be seen how much he'll do during those meaningless exhibitions.
