Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes went 23-of-37 passing for 249 yards and 3 TDs with 1 INT in Sunday night's loss at Tampa Bay. Mahomes found TE Travis Kelce, TE Jody Fortson and RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire for TDs. Kelce (10) and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (8) led the Chiefs in targets and receptions. A Week 5 home date with the Raiders looks even more favorable for the K.C. offense.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 20 of 35 passes (57.1%) for 262 yards (7.48 per attempt), 1 TD and 1 INT in Sunday's loss to the Colts. It was a disappointing performance vs. a defense that had been soft against the pass through 2 games. But there's no larger takeaway on Mahomes' outlook here. A Week 4 visit to Tampa Bay looks challenging and might push Mahomes further down our top 12 than usual. Then come matchups with the Raiders, Bills and 49ers before the Week 8 bye. Buffalo and San Francisco don't look like easy spots either. We'll see about Mahomes' specific projections as we get closer.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes delivered 360 yards and 5 TDs on 30-of-39 passing in Sunday's laugher at Arizona. Mahomes largely spread targets around, dealing 9 to TE Travis Kielce, 8 to WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, 6 to WR Mecole Hardman -- with 3 other guys drawing at least 3. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire snagged 2 of the TD throws, with 1 apiece going to Kielce, Hardman and TE Joe Fortson. It was a soft Cardinals defense, but Mahomes let fantasy football players know we need not worry too much about life after Tyreek Hill.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports that the Chiefs are "calling teams" trying to trade for a "top receiver." We could speculate on whom that might mean, but who would have ever guess that this offseason would include Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill being traded. For now, it's just a signal that we shouldn't get too comfy with the idea of either JuJu Smith-Schuster or Marquez Valdes-Scantling leading Kansas City in targets this season. Keep this possibility in mind as you decide where to value the recently signed wideouts in current best-ball drafting.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes cleared concussion protocol, HC Andy Reid said after Sunday's loss to the Titans. We'll keep an eye on Mahomes this coming week, but it looks like he'll be available for next Monday night's game vs. the Giants.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes took a knee to the head as he was falling to the ground in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. Tennessee. He was noticeably woozy as he was helped off the field. Mahomes will certainly be checked for a concussion. We'll update his status when we know more.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes confirmed on Friday that he'll have no restrictions at the start of training camp. That's no surprise after he was a full-go in June workouts, but it's another reminder that last year's toe injury will not be an issue in 2021.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was a full participant in minicamp and doesn't sound at all worried about the left foot injury that required surgery after the Super Bowl. “I don’t see any problems moving forward,” Mahomes said. “Obviously I’m going to continue with the rehab and work to strengthen it. I feel I had good OTAs, a good minicamp. I was able to move around and do the things I needed to do.” Barring a setback, the foot will be a non-issue this season.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) is a full participant in OTAs this week, according to HC Andy Reid. “He’s been doing everything,” Reid said of Mahomes, who had turf toe surgery 2 days after the Super Bowl. “He’s been a full go, and he’s still working with [trainer] Rick [Burkholder] with the toe. We utilize this as more of a passing camp. We don’t run the ball much. His toe has really done well.” Mahomes has been setback-free in his rehab and is on track to be at 100% well before Week 1.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is "ahead of schedule" in his rehab from February toe surgery and will "do some stuff" in OTAs this coming week, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Mahomes is on track to be a full-go for the start of training camp. The toe shouldn't be an issue in 2021. Playing behind a revamped (and likely much-improved) offensive line, Mahomes is the favorite to lead all QBs in fantasy points this year.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is expected to be ready for training camp after undergoing toe surgery on February 10, GM Brett Veach said. Mahomes has been slapped with a 3-month timeline for recovery, which would put him back at 100% by May. Veach is hoping Mahomes can get on the field for June minicamp (assuming minicamps happen this year). We'll continue to keep a close on the situation, but we're not expecting the toe to be a factor in 2021.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will undergo surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn plantar plate in his foot (turf toe), according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes' rehab will take "several months," but he's fully expected to be ready for the start of the 2021 season. We'll obviously keep a close eye on Mahomes' progress, but we're not downgrading him in early fantasy drafts.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will visit a foot specialist after the Super Bowl and will "likely" have surgery on his injured toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes said this week that the toe is feeling "a lot better," but it's safe to say he'll be operating at less than 100% as he plays for a 2nd straight Lombardi Trophy. We'll keep an eye on his recovery this offseason, but the toe shouldn't be an issue for the 2021 season.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was diagnosed with turf toe on his left foot following last week's win over the Browns, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes was clearly bothered by that issue before exiting with the head injury. "The next day was very sore, and every single day since then it's gotten a lot better," he said. Mahomes will reportedly be re-evaluated by a foot specialist after the season to determine whether he needs surgery on the toe. We'll see how he fares in the AFC Championship and then monitor the situation this offseason.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said Friday afternoon that he's cleared the concussion protocol. "We have the belief that I'll have no lingering effects and I'll be able to go out there and be who I am," he added. The bigger issue now might be the toe injury that had Mahomes clearly hobbled last week before he left with the head injury. That might limit his mobility inside the pocket and his rushing ability outside of it.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (concussion) practiced again on Thursday. He was officially limited but took the "majority" of the 1st-team snaps, HC Andy Reid said. Mahomes continues to trend toward playing vs. the Bills on Sunday.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Wednesday afternoon that QB Patrick Mahomes "feels good" after taking "all the snaps" in practice. Reid confirmed that Mahomes remains in the concussion protocol, but he continues to trend in the right direction for this weekend's AFC Championship vs. the Bills.

Update: The Chiefs listed Mahomes as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has no concussion symptoms as of Wednesday morning, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes is expected to have a "very light practice" on Wednesday, per Rapoport, and then "ramp up" through the rest of the week. If he stays symptom-free, he figures to be cleared for Sunday's AFC Championship vs. the Bills.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes cleared "some big steps" in the concussion protocol on Monday. He still has a ways to go -- but Mahomes is expected to practice on Wednesday, and there's "hope and optimism" he'll be able to play vs. the Bills this weekend. Schefter adds that Mahomes is also dealing with a foot injury, which was clearly bothering him in Sunday's win over the Browns before he exited with the head injury.
