So far during the NFL’s 2021 offseason program, the Kansas City Chiefs have engaged in what Andy Reid refers to as “passing camps.” Patrick Mahomes, who is rehabbing from offseason toe surgery, hasn’t been doing much in the way of running around during practices because of that.

The big question moving forward into training camp is whether Mahomes would have any limitations from his injury when the running work resumes. Well, the latest workout video from Mahomes’ long-time trainer, APEC’s Bobby Stroupe, should alleviate all worries about Mahomes being ready for training camp in late July. He looks to be in excellent shape and doesn’t appear limited at all by his toe.

When mandatory minicamp broke, Mahomes said that Chiefs’ athletic trainers Rick Burkholder and Julie Frymyer were in communication with Stroupe about his continued rehab. This looks to perhaps be a part of that plan.

“I’ll be training with my trainer Bobby Stroupe and he’s talked to Rick (Burkholder) and he’s talked to Julie (Frymyer) and really got a good game plan of how we’re going to continue the rehab,” Mahomes told reporters in mid-June. “But at the same time, making sure that I’m physically ready to go whenever training camp goes and I have no limitations at all.”

To the naked eye, this seems to be Mahomes participating in some sort of game of tag. But it’s actually an agility drill, designed with working out his feet and flexibility, in addition to working out his natural competitiveness. Drills like these are the type that makes Mahomes so good at avoiding defenders in the pocket and on the run. It also looks like a lot of fun, which is an underrated part of offseason training while away from the team.

Beyond how good Mahomes looks in this video, it also sounds like he’s doing more running out in Texas. Whatever you do, don’t call him sneaky fast.

If Mahomes is hitting 20.6 mph while training, I think it’s safe to say that he will be ready to go with no limitations at training camp. . . and then some.
