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.
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes sustained a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's Divisional Round win over the Browns. It's his 2nd documented concussion, with the 1st coming at Texas Tech back in 2014. Mahomes' progress through the protocol this coming week will be the biggest story in sports. If he's not cleared by Sunday, QB Chad Henne will get the start in the AFC Championship vs. the Bills.
Chiefs HC Andy Reid confirmed on Monday that "key starters" won't play in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Chargers. Kansas City has the AFC's #1 seed locked up. Don't expect to see QB Patrick Mahomes, WR Tyreek Hill or TE Travis Kelce on the field at all. WR Sammy Watkins and RB Le'Veon Bell also figure to be limited or sit out entirely. QB Chad Henne will draw the start for Kansas City. We'll look for clues on who the RB and WR snaps will go to.
The forecast for today's Chiefs-Broncos game calls for temperatures in the teens with a wind chill near zero. Winds will be around 10 mph, and 2-3 inches of snow are expected. The wind and snow aren't real concerns, but temperatures this low do tend to impact passing production. It's something to keep in mind, although Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce remain must-starts. Note that the over/under in this game has sunk from 48.5 to 44.
The Patriots-Chiefs game has been moved to 7:05 pm ET on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. (Falcons-Packers has been pushed back to 8:50 pm ET.) This is, of course, barring any more positive COVID tests from either team. Patrick Mahomes, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce should be in fantasy lineups. There are no must-start Patriots with QB Cam Newton out -- but guys like Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry and the RBs are fine to get into lineups if they're your best options.
As of 8 am ET on Sunday morning, the Patriots-Chiefs game is still expected to be played in Week 4, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. COVID tests on all other Patriots players came back negative on Saturday night; the league is still waiting for the Chiefs' latest test results. It's still unclear if the game will be played on Monday or Tuesday -- and there's still a chance it's not even played this week if the Chiefs return more positive tests. We'd lean toward keeping your usual Chiefs and Patriots in fantasy lineups for now, but there is a risk that you'll end up taking a zero.
The NFL is postponing Sunday's Patriots-Chiefs game, though they still expect to play it either Monday or Tuesday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "Tuesday is more likely." That would keep players from those teams -- minus Cam Newton -- available for Week 4 fantasy football lineups, though all would obviously be off the main DFS slate. We'll continue watching for further updates. A postponement to Tuesday was also the initial plan for Steelers-Titans before that game ultimately got moved to Week 7. So far, at least, this situation doesn't include multiple positive tests amid either team.
The Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes have agreed to a 10-year extension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That keeps the 24-year-old in Kansas City through the 2031 campaign. Mahomes, of course, is on a Hall-of-Fame trajectory, averaging 304 passing yards and 2.5 TDs per game over the past 2 seasons. He sits #1 in our Dynasty QB Rankings.
Snow is expected throughout today's Broncos-Chiefs game. There are already multiple inches of snow on the field. We're not adjusting projections for this game because there's no evidence that snow impacts scoring. But you can certainly use the weather as a tiebreaker between 2 closely ranked players.
