Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ turf toe surgery went well, as first reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport noted, “no issues at all,” signifying that the team is over its first offseason hurdle.

That is good news, as it had previously been unclear if Mahomes would be able to participate in any offseason activity.
Mahomes suffered the toe injury in the Chiefs’ Divisional round game against the Cleveland Browns and played through it in the team’s AFC title win against the Buffalo Bills and Super Bowl LV loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mahomes appeared hindered immediately after the injury — but given the circumstances, looked to move well in both the conference title and Super Bowl games.
With these reports, it seems the Chiefs should have a fully healthy Mahomes when they begin their campaign to reclaim the Super Bowl championship.
