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.

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.
