The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the top threats in the AFC conference heading into the 2021 NFL season, but a lot of the team's success will be based on the health of starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Thankfully, the Chiefs got good news when it came to his latest injury update.

It seems like Mahomes is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a surgery he had to repair a toe injury suffered in the AFC Championship game against the Cleveland Browns. He is currently on track to be fully ready to go by the start of Kansas City's training camp.

Patrick Mahomes Injury Update

Although he won't be at 100%, Mahomes may also partially participate in OTAs for the Chiefs that start on May 25th, according to reports. That is great news for the Chiefs as they need the former NFL MVP to be at his best if they want to make a third consecutive Super Bowl appearance.

And by training camp, it sounds like the Kansas City QB is expected to be back to full strength.

Mahomes balled out in 2020 completing 66.3% of his passes for 4,740 yards, 38 touchdowns and just 6 interceptions. He averaged a league-high 316.0 passing yards per game and led an offense that averaged 28.5 points per game (No. 5 in NFL).

All things considered, there is no reason to be worried about Mahomes' injury as the NFL offseason rolls on. He will be back out on on the field making ridiculous plays soon enough. The Chiefs currently have the best odds to win the Super Bowl at +500, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
