“You have to let that stuff motivate you.” Mahomes added, “You look back at (2019) and we were able to find a way to flip a switch and make ourselves better and make a run at the Super Bowl.

“You have to have that same mentality of knowing that we’ve been there two years in a row now. We’ve won one and we’ve lost one. We have to find a way to get back and try to win it,” said Mahomes.

“I’ve dealt with ankle injuries in my career and being able to teach myself how to hit in the right spots with my feet. Teaching myself just how to get back from this injury will help me out in the long run.

“I’m trying to get back on the field. Hopefully, I can be able to do some stuff by the end of the offseason.”
