Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach says he's optimistic Patrick Mahomes, Mitchell Schwartz, and Eric Fisher will be healthy for the start of training camp, according to The Athletic's Nate Taylor.
Veach added there's a chance Mahomes could be cleared before minicamp following his foot surgery, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. The signal-caller underwent a procedure to alleviate his turf toe on Feb. 10, and the estimated recovery timeline is three months.
All three injuries impacted the Chiefs during their run to Super Bowl LV. Fisher missed the playoff finale due to an Achilles tear, while Schwartz recently underwent surgery after a back issue bothered him last season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers stopped the Chiefs in their quest for back-to-back championships. Mahomes didn't throw a touchdown pass during the 31-9 defeat while under constant pressure, with the Chiefs' offensive line allowing three sacks and nine quarterback hits.
Veach is looking for both familiar and possibly new faces to step up on the offensive line.
"I think it will be a combination of what we have in-house and blending that with some new talent," Veach said, according to team reporter Matt McCullen.
