Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes ahead of schedule after toe surgery

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said Monday he is ahead of schedule in his rehab after undergoing offseason surgery to repair a turf toe injury.Mahomes had the procedure days after guiding the Chiefs to a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance, in which they fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”Obviously, we’re trying to be cautious and not push me out there too soon, but I’m doing what I can,” Mahomes said. “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 along that same pathway and that hopefully I can do some stuff by the end of the offseason.”Mahomes played through the injury, sustained in the playoffs during Kansas City’s victory over the Cleveland Browns in the divisional round in January.Mahomes, 25, was the league’s Most Valuable Player in 2018 before his consecutive Super Bowl seasons, including a win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. Even so, he believes he can get better as he gets healthier.
