Patrick Mahomes Suffering From Turf Toe That Could Require Surgery, Won’t Be 100% Healthy Against The Bills
Patrick Mahomes has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol, but that is far from the only injury concern for the former MVP.
Sources told Ian rapoport of NFL Network that the Kansas City Chiefs QB has been diagnosed with turf toe in his left foot following the Divisional Round win over the Cleveland Browns.
Of the toe, Mahomes said, “The next day was very sore, and every single day since then it’s gotten a lot better.”
The report goes on to state there is not necessarily a belief that Mahomes will need surgery on the plantar plate injury. He will, however, be re-evaluated following the season by a foot specialist to determine if he’ll need surgery.
“I’ll be out there and be myself,” Mahomes said.
The Chiefs and the Bills are scheduled to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
