Patrick Mahomes indicated he's ahead of schedule following offseason surgery for turf toe.
"I think I'm progressing well,'' said Mahomes, who felt well enough recently to travel to Georgia and attend the Masters Tournament with, among others, teammate Travis Kelce. "I think I'm ahead of schedule myself. Obviously, we're trying to be cautious. We're not pushing me out there too soon. But I'm doing what I can. I've gotten out of the boot finally. It took forever. Now I'm trying to get back on the field and get that stuff working. I'm sure they'll keep me on that same pathway and that hopefully I can do some stuff by the end of the offseason.''
The Chiefs expect Mahomes to be at full strength for the beginning of training camp in July.
"He's got great flexibility in that toe,'' Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "He worked his tail off, not a real fun thing for him to do with that. It seems like a small thing, but that toe is rather large and stiff before the surgery and after the surgery, so he's really worked hard to get that right.''
