Patrick Mahomes will have surgery to repair his turf toe injury, according to a report on Tuesday. The surgery, which will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson, is scheduled to take place on the former league and Super Bowl MVP on Wednesday.

Mahomes is expected to be ready to go by training camp, according to a source.

Mahomes was 26-of-49 for 270 yards, zero touchdowns, two interceptions, and a passer rating of 52.3 in Sunday’s 31-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

Kansas City failed to score a touchdown for the first time since Mahomes became a starter in 2018. Overall as a starter, he is 38-8. He is 6-2 as a starter for the Chiefs in playoff games.

“Yeah, I can’t say the toe was a problem when I played last week or two weeks ago and I played well on it,” Mahomes said. “It’s something you battle through. You’re playing football you have to battle through injuries. We’ll look at it tomorrow and we’ll make a final decision on if we’re going to have to have surgery on it or not.”

Anderson was the surgeon who handled both Chad Henne’s ankle fracture last year and Taco Charlton’s ankle injury earlier this year.
