Its being reported that Mahomes has been working more with some members of the offensive line, including Chiefs rookie Creed Humphrey.

This news is good to hear after many were questioning the Chiefs for their handling of their O-line and the Mahomes injury. Having suffered a toe injury in the 2020 NFL season, Mahomes had surgery after suffering a physically punishing loss in the Super Bowl against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
As the Kansas City Chiefs prepare to fight for another Super Bowl berth this season, having their QB healthy is crucial. His leadership and overall presence can be the glue which molds together multiple positions on the offense, especially up front, that have yet to develop any true chemistry.
This season will be the biggest test Mahomes and Co. will face in quite some time. With an offensive line that already ranks in the top 10 in the NFL and an already-known collection of offensive talent, time will tell if the Chiefs can produce multiple wins. If and when the offensive line starts to play at a high level, injuries like the one Mahomes suffered should not be as common.
While rookies and quarterbacks will report first, all players will be at training camp come next Wednesday, July 28, at 9:15 a.m. August 14 will mark the first preseason game for the team. After that, the Chiefs will begin their regular season on September 12.
