Head coach Andy Reid praised the coaching staff who have been working with Mahomes during the team’s downtime and also acknowledged Mahomes’ willingness to do whatever he can to stay healthy.
«I wouldn’t say he’s 100%, but the coaching staff works with him relentlessly. I guess it would be a tribute to both of us, for Pat to come back for more and for those guys who criticize him,» Reid said Tuesday.
