KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSHB) — A report Friday indicates Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is ahead of schedule in rehabbing from foot surgery.

Mahomes underwent a procedure on Feb. 10 to repair a torn plantar plate, also known as a turf toe injury.

NFL Network reporter James Palmer tweeted Friday that Mahomes is ahead of schedule and will participate in the team’s offseason activities starting next Tuesday.

Mahomes was hobbled by the injury during the team’s 2021 run through the NFL playoffs - a run that fell short in a Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Palmer tweeted the team hopes Mahomes will be fully ready to go by the time training camp gets underway in late July or early August.
