Andy Reid confirms Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes’ unhindered offseason workouts despite ankle injury concerns

The Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, suffered an ankle injury during the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but even such a setback couldn’t stop him from running for his second Super Bowl ring.

The ankle caused him a concerning amount of trouble during the crucial playoff time, and Patrick eventually got over it and played an instrumental performance for the rest of the season. After the season is complete, it was time to heal that ankle for the next season of matchups.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid also thinks of his star quarterback’s health and provides a vital update for the fans.

How is Patrick Mahomes doing with his ankle?

Coach Reid has monitored the course of the 27-year-old’s recovery and training in the offseason and said, “He didn’t have to get anything done. He’s doing well; he feels good. This time, he jumped right back into workouts and worked the ankle, rehabbing the ankle. He’s lifting and running the parts that he could run, and he didn’t miss a beat on that.”

With that statement, the fans can assume with delight that the recovery is going well and potentially even better than initial expectations. The Chiefs fans got a real fright after the injury and seeing the two-time Super Bowl MVP going out limping. It was initially thought to be a serious issue, but fortunately, they got away this time.

That’s why the five-time pro bowler can’t take any risks by skipping training and hindering the healing process. Moreover, he has to cope with some of the new teammates the Chiefs are recruiting to defend the championship.

Despite the injury, Mahomes managed to throw 7 touchdowns among 72 passes and accumulate 234.3 yards of passing per game in three playoff appearances.
