Dr. Robert Anderson, a renowned foot and ankle surgeon who serves as a Packers’ team physician, operated on Patrick Mahomes‘ foot Wednesday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the surgery to repair a torn plantar plate went well with “no issues at all.”

The Chiefs quarterback’s rehab likely keeps him off the field this offseason, but the expectation is Mahomes will recover in plenty of time for the start of the 2021 season.

Mahomes has a league MVP and a Super Bowl MVP in his three full seasons as the team’s starter. It could be even better if not for a loss to Tom Brady and the Patriots in overtime of the AFC Championship Game in 2018 and a loss to Brady and the Bucs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.

Mahomes completed 65 percent of his passes for 850 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions during the 2020 postseason. He went 26-of-49 for 270 yards with two picks in Super Bowl LV, while also rushing for 33 yards.

  1. His record would be even better if not for those losses? That’s like saying Jim Kelly would have 4 Superbowl victories if not for those 4 losses… Come on man

  2. Running for his life all day Sunday probably didn’t help. Wishing Patrick Mahomes the best and hoping he’s 100% ready for next year so the Bucs have some real competition in the Super Bowl next time and it isn’t one-sided again if the Chiefs make it back to the big game.

  3. Mahomes had his chance to go ‘Toe to Toe’ with Brady.

    Instead of standing tall and throwing he decided his best attribute was to run around and make circus throws.

    Running first QBs are not the best for the NFL.

    I say make a new rule where the QB can only run once per 4 down possesion. It can be on any of the downs they choose, after that its a penalty for the QB to cross the line of scrimmage.

    That would separate the Great QBs from the Runners.

  4. Is this injury likely to impeded his running?

    Although frankly, if the Chiefs had run the ball more they might have had more success. Clyde Edwards-Helaire averaged more than 7 yards per carry but only carried 9 times.

  5. Or one could say that Mahomes’ record would be worse if he had to play Brady twice a year.

    Mahomes has never beat Brady in the playoffs because Brady becomes “Psycho Tom” in the playoffs.
