The Kansas City Chiefs head into their offseason and will get an important piece of business handled this first week. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes will have surgery on his foot to repair a torn plantar plate that is also known as turf toe, per Ian Rapoport. The recovery is expected to take several months, but Rapoport reported he should make a full recovery.
Mahomes was given an injury designation for his toe starting in the conference championship week practice reports. He looked slowed at different times, and in Sunday’s title game, he looked a little the worse for wear at times.
The Chiefs went their separate ways after the Super Bowl and will not start practicing again until late April with the offseason workout program. Mahomes could use the facility for rehab on his foot, but it is not yet clear what the rehab plan will look like.
