KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce entered the Chiefs training facility on Monday without a walking boot.

That's progress.

Kelce underwent ankle surgery after this past season ended with a loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

"The ankle is getting there," Kelce said. "Finally got the boot off, it feels good."

Kelce said he didn't know when he'll practice. Chiefs began the first phase of their organized team activities, commonly known as OTAs, on Monday with conditioning and film review. Players can work out on the field on their own but not with the team's coaches, per NFL rules.

"I wish I could do everything right now," Kelce said.


Kelce finished with a career-high 103 receptions, 1,336 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, and didn't miss time due to an injury.
