Mahomes will have surgery Wednesday to repair a torn plantar plate in his left foot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes apparently had a severe case of turf toe, though he claimed he was approaching full strength the week before the Super Bowl. He limped through parts of Kansas City's three playoff games, often escaping pressure despite being unable to run at full speed. Mahomes isn't likely to participate in offseason practices if the Chiefs have them, but the team does expect him to be ready for Week 1 of the 2021 campaign. Foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson will perform the surgery Wednesday.

Mahomes completed 26 of 49 passes for 270 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Kansas City's 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. He also carried five times for 33 yards.
EDGE Analysis
The first double-digit loss of Mahomes' career came with the context of Tampa Bay's pass rush feasting on an O-line without both starting tackles. He also battled a number of dropped passes, including two would-be touchdowns -- to Tyreek Hill and Darrel Williams -- the combination of which simply proved insurmountable. Mahomes also was hobbled by the turf toe injury he suffered during the divisional round against the Browns. Despite the lopsided loss to the Bucs Mahomes put together yet another outstanding campaign in 2020, compiling 4,740 passing yards, 38 touchdowns and six interceptions, in addition to 308 rushing yards and two scores on the ground. Nor, of course, can it be discounted that Mahomes has now led the Chiefs to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances. With top offensive weapons Hill and Travis Kelce both returning next season, and his offensive line set to get back to full health, Mahomes once again will be in the mix as as the first quarterback off the board in fantasy drafts come 2021. He should be back to 100 percent for training camp, but his status for OTAs may be in question after Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported earlier Sunday that Mahomes will undergo offseason surgery to address the injured toe.

Mahomes will continue to play through a turf toe injury to his left foot in Sunday's Super Bowl LV matchup with the Buccaneers, but he's expected to require offseason surgery to address the issue, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though he told Adam Teicher of ESPN.com earlier in the week that he feels "pretty close to 100 percent" and enters the Super Bowl without an injury designation, Mahomes has been affected by the toe issue since initially picking up the injury in the Chiefs' win over the Browns in the divisional round. Mahomes lacked his usual mobility outside the pocket during the Chiefs' AFC Championship Game victory over the Bills, rushing five times for five yards. The 25-year-old still masterfully dissected the Bills defense through the air -- 29-for-38 passing for 325 yards and three touchdowns -- but the Buccaneers could present a greater challenge to the quarterback. Mahomes will be without his top left tackle (Eric Fisher, Achilles) and right tackle (Mitchell Schwartz, back) for the Super Bowl, which could make him vulnerable to pressure from star edge rushers Jason Pierre-Paul and Shaquil Barrett.

Mahomes said his toe is "pretty close to 100 percent" and shouldn't be a problem in the Super Bowl, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes injured his toe in the divisional-round win over Cleveland, visibly limping multiple times before a concussion forced him out of the game. He bounced back to throw for 325 yards and three TDs in the AFC Championship Game, but he had just one rush attempt (for nine yards) that wasn't a kneel down. It sounds like Mahomes could be more of a rushing threat in the Super Bowl, where the Chiefs hope to get Sammy Watkins (calf) back in the lineup to face the Bucs.

Mahomes completed 29 of 38 pass attempts for 325 yards and three touchdowns, adding five carries for five yards during Sunday's 38-24 win against the Bills in the AFC Championship Game.
EDGE Analysis
By virtue of Kansas City's 22-17 win over Cleveland in the divisional round, Mahomes garnered the opportunity to become the first quarterback in NFL history to start three conference title games in his first four seasons in the league. He had to overcome a case of turf toe and a stint in the NFL's concussion protocol to earn his 17th start of the season. After exiting in the third quarter of last Sunday's win over the Browns, Mahomes proved capable of doing just that. Kansas City remained without starting right tackle Mitchell Schwartz (back) for the AFC Championship Game, while Eric Fisher (Achilles) departed during the contest and was unable to return. Still, Buffalo generated only one sack of Mahomes, as the Chiefs were 5-for-6 in converting red-zone opportunities into TDs. The 25-year-old gets his second Super Bowl appearance in as many seasons as he prepares for a fifth career game against Tom Brady. Mahomes is 2-2 in head-to-head matchups with Brady, who will make the 10th Super Bowl appearance of his illustrious career during his debut season in Tampa Bay.

Mahomes doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, but his mobility could be compromised while he contends with a turf toe issue on his left foot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Before he exited last week's divisional-round win over the Browns with the head injury, Mahomes didn't look to be moving around at 100 percent, though he still avoided taking a sack and scrambled three times for 14 yards and a touchdown. Mahomes was able to take most of the Chiefs' snaps in practice this week and eventually cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, but since most of those sessions were walk-throughs, he didn't put much strain on the toe in question. For his part, Mahomes doesn't seem to believe his toe is a major concern, saying that the injury has "gotten a lot better every single day." The Chiefs still plan to have Mahomes meet with a foot specialist after the season to determine whether he'll need offseason surgery to provide a more permanent fix for the toe.

Mahomes (head/toe) has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes revealed the big news about 15 minutes after coach Andy Reid told reporters that the QB had one step remaining to clear the protocol. The star quarterback says he hasn't dealt with any concussion symptoms this week, also mentioning that his toe injury feels much better, per Nate Taylor of The Athletic. Mahomes said he'll "go out there and be myself" in the AFC Championship Game against Buffalo.

Coach Andy Reid said Friday that Mahomes has made it through four of five steps in the concussion protocol, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes took the majority of practice snaps Wednesday and Thursday, with the Chiefs listing him as a limited participant in both sessions. Regardless of his classification on the Friday injury report, Mahomes will need clearance from an independent neurological consultant and the Chiefs' physician before he can play in the AFC Championship Game against Buffalo on Sunday. Chad Henne will fill in at quarterback if Mahomes isn't able to play.

Mahomes (concussion/toe) was officially listed as limited at practice Thursday.
EDGE Analysis
Though Mahomes continues to be listed as limited by the team, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com notes that coach Andy Reid said that the star QB took the majority of signal-caller snaps during Thursday's practice. Friday's final injury report of the week will reveal whether Mahomes draws an injury designation for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills or is fully cleared to play by virtue of completely passing through the NFL's concussion protocol.

The Chiefs seemingly expect Mahomes (concussion) to be ready for Sunday's game against Buffalo, as he received the majority of first-team snaps during Thursday's practice, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes also took most of the snaps Wednesday, when he was initially listed as a full participant before the Chiefs downgraded him to LP in accordance with the rules of the NFL's concussion protocol. He'll still need to pass through the final stages of the protocol to gain clearance for the AFC Championship Game, so it's possible the Chiefs list him as limited when they release their Thursday injury report.
