Patrick Mahomes wasn’t just posing for Adidas photos at the Masters earlier this month.

During his press conference to open the offseason program on Monday, Mahomes said he was out of the walking boot following surgery to repair ligaments in the big toe of his left foot.

“I think I’m progressing well. I think I’m ahead of schedule, myself. Obviously, they’re trying to be cautious and not push me out there too soon. But I’m doing what I can,” Mahomes said. “I’m trying to get back on the field and get that stuff working. So I’m sure they’ll keep me along that same pathway so that I can hopefully do some stuff by the end of the offseason.”

Head coach Andy Reid also noted Mahomes is doing “tremendous” in his recovery on Monday.

Mahomes underwent the surgery days after the Chiefs lost Super Bowl LV to the Bucs in February.

  1. He’s clearly ahead of schedule racking up leg injuries with two in the last couple of years. That’s a lot for a young guy who has played only 3 seasons. It can only get worse as he ages. This is why historically running QBs don’t last, and every time they run, they take the throwing arm with them. This is also why talking about passing Brady in SBs is foolish.
