Kansas City Chiefs stalwart Patrick Mahomes is on the verge to make his second straight Super Bowl appearance and a chance to become back to back champion.
However, during their Divisional Round clash against Cleveland Browns, Mahomes had sustained a toe injury, along with a concussion.
While Mahomes recently cleared the concussion protocol, questions were lingering about his foot issue and a worry that it could affect the Super Bowl MVP of last year his performance, or worse, even his appearance for the final showdown on 7th February.
Patrick Mahomes’ toe “pretty close to 100%”
In a fortunate turn of events, its a huge relief for the Chiefs fans as the quarterback himself has confirmed that his toe is almost cured and will be fully fit before facing Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Raymond James Stadium.
The report was made by ESPN’s Adam Teicher who quoted Mahomes via a tweet: “It’s pretty close to 100%. I’m sure by game day it will be.”
During their Browns faceoff, Mahomes was taken off the pitch after clashing with linebacker Mack Wilson while rushing for a first down and sustaining a concussion.
Just days before their AFC Championship clash with Buffalo Bills, Mahomes was reported to have cleared ‘some big steps’, but the persistence of his toe problem was still a worrying throught.
However, the 25-year-old still made appearance against Bills and finished with completing 29 or 38 passes for 325 yards and clocked three passing touchdowns.
Its no wonder that Andy Reid had full faith that his reliable QB will be in peak physical condition ahead of the Super Bowl.
