If you’re looking for some good news near the end of another work week, K.C. Chiefs fans can take heart knowing that the team’s star quarterback is apparently pretty well ahead of schedule when it comes to recovery from a toe injury that required offseason surgery. During the team’s recent offseason training activities and workouts, head coach Andy Reid told reporters that Mahomes was a “full go” in practice.

Earlier this offseason, reports emerged saying that Mahomes was ahead of schedule, so it was nice to see this confirmed in person.Mahomes originally hurt his toe during the team’s win over the Cleveland Browns in the Divisional Round of the ’20 postseason. He played through the pain in a win over the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship, but it proved too much to overcome when the offensive front fell apart against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

The front office has done everything they can this offseason in order to keep Mahomes healthy in 2022 and beyond with a complete rebuild of the offensive line. Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz were released after suffering injuries that left questions about their future. The Chiefs then spent big in free agency on former Patriots guard Joe Thuney, coaxed Kyle Long out of retirement, drafted center Creed Humphrey in the second round, and traded a first-round pick and then some to the Baltimore Ravens for Orlando Brown, Jr. Along with the returns of Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Lucas Niang, the Chiefs have a largely remade line,.

Any hopes the Chiefs have to make another Super Bowl run rests firmly on the shoulders of Mahomes, so his ability to recover this quickly from postseason surgery is a very good thing, especially as he develops chemistry behind a new line and works with new centers in Austin Blythe or Humphrey.
