Andy Reid: Patrick Mahomes’ ankle hasn’t slowed down his offseason workouts

The most-watched ankle of the NFL postseason hasn’t caused any trouble during the offseason.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid told Steve Wyche of NFL Network that quarterback Patrick Mahomes‘ ankle hasn’t prevented him from working out this offseason and isn’t a concern going forward.

“He didn’t have to get anything done. He’s doing good, he feels good,” Reid said. “This time, he jumped right back into workouts and working the ankle, rehabbing the ankle. He’s lifting and running the parts that he could run, and he didn’t miss a beat on that.”

Mahomes injured the ankle in the Chiefs’ divisional round win over the Jaguars and had to miss the second quarter, but he managed to tough it out through the second half of that game, and then played every snap of both the AFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl. Going forward, it appears to be a non-issue.

  1. Let’s hope the ankle will be fine. Mahomes is the most exciting player in the NFL, and it’s a pleasure to watch the man play football.

  2. Baltimore’s QB could learn a thing or two from Patrick. From his work ethic to how he deals with his contract, and not being the highest paid QB.

  3. In spite of being a die-hard Bengals fan, I love watching Patrick play and hope he heals quickly. I only wish we had a QB of his caliber.

  4. Like him or not but in this past Super Bowl he put to rest my “he can’t read defenses” argument. He picked the Eagles defense apart in the 2nd half.

  5. Mahomes PLAYED through a significant ankle injury, to help HIS team. Lamar folded like a cheap suit and was “too hurt” to play, or even TRAVEL with his team. With what? A hangnail? Good luck learning to flip burgers Lamar!

  6. No kidding it hasn’t slowed down his offseason workouts. The only time it slowed him down in the playoffs was between plays when he knew there was a camera pointed at him. Big Ben used to do the same crap all the time too.

  7. Selling the drama…what miraculous recovery from an injury that keeps most players out for weeks. Its just amazing… heals up like wolverine in a matter of minutes. I wonder what is wrong with the dozens of other players who have to sit out multiple games every year with the ankle sprains.

  8. I hope Mahommes can get past twisting an ankle. Kids on the playground do it every day, and usually forget about it 15 minutes later. Now, if he is actually diagnosed for the first time with a high ankle sprain, that’s a different story.

  9. Patrick’s ankle wasn’t an issue. Dude faked it so bad. Funny it didn’t bother him until he was 2 scores down. It’s the perfect built in excuse, the chiefs lose abd he gets to be the hero who tried to play on it and that’s the reason they lost. If the chiefs win, he’s the hero who willed his team to a win. It was a win win situation for Patrick
