Patrick Mahomes on his toe: If there were a game, I’d be able to play in it

USA TODAY Sports

By all accounts, quarterback Patrick Mahomes has progressed well in his rehab from offseason surgery on the big toe of his left foot.

After head coach Andy Reid said last week that Mahomes was “full go” in offseason activities, Mahomes said Thursday that the foot feels good.

“If there was a game, I’d be able to play in it, I think,” Mahomes said in his press conference. “At the end of the day, there’s still stuff I’m going to have to work through. I’m going to continue to rehab and continue to keep strengthening that stuff. But it’s good to be able to get out there a little bit earlier than the schedule had me and be able to get some work in.”

The expectation has long been that Mahomes would be fine for training camp after the surgery to correct an issue that hobbled him during the 2020 postseason. That he already feels ready to play is a good sign for Kansas City as the offseason program continues.

  1. Sounds like Patty wants to hang onto the foot excuse as long as he can. I suppose scoring only 9 points in the year’s biggest game will do that to ya?

  2. Chill out Patrick, it isn’t time yet. Your older self will thank you, trust me.

  3. Patty already starting in with the excuses? Can’t wait to hear his litany of excuses when they miss the playoffs.

    Lol. A guy who only misses 2 games when he dislocates his kneecap doesn’t need/use excuses.

  5. A big toe injury recovery is to be neither taken lightly nor accelerated. That bad boy links directly to your Achilles and is ground zero for all explosive football moves. Including throwing. Depending on the severity, it may require recovery time commensurate with a ruptured or partially ruptured Achilles. This dude has got to take it slow and methodical or he’ll become very average very quickly.

  6. Toe on Patrick Mahomes: You’re a great kid amd I hate to break it to you. There was a game, the Superbowl, in which we played. Remember? You ran for an impressive 400 plus yards but unfortunately it was in the wrong direction.
