Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Updates on his status since an ankle injury in Week 2 of the preseason have been sparse, but it looks like he'll be ready for his planned role in Sunday's opener vs. the Browns.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) and Darrel Williams (concussion) are on track to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Browns. “It looked like they’re moving around pretty good," Reid said. “I think we’ll be okay there.” Edwards-Helaire looked like a 3-down back in limited preseason action. We'll track his practice participation this week, but plan on having him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

The Chiefs released RB Darwin Thompson. They're set to enter the season with Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon atop the depth chart.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) practiced on Monday, according to beat writer Matt Derrick. It sounds like CEH was limited after injuring that ankle in Friday's preseason game -- but the fact that he was out there at all is an excellent sign. Edwards-Helaire should be ready to go come Week 1, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on his status.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire's sprain is on the inside of his ankle, according to The Kansas City's Star's Sam McDowell. With the disclaimer that we're not doctors, that sounds similar to the injury that's plagued Saints WR Michael Thomas. “They got to check it (today), do what they do there,” HC Andy Reid said. “It’s tender now. It doesn’t look like a high-ankle sprain. That’s always a good thing. They’ll double-check it." We'll update CEH's status as soon as we know more.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a “slight” ankle sprain in Week 2 of the preseason, per HC Andy Reid. Edwards-Helaire will undergo further examination today (Saturday). We’re about 3 weeks away from the opener, so there’s time for the 2nd-year back to avoid missing games if the injury is indeed minor. We’ll keep you posted.

According to SB Nation's Arrowhead Pride blog, the Chiefs "have their No. 1 and No. 2 backs in place in starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire and third-down back Darrel Williams." That would leave Jerick McKinnon fighting for 3rd on the depth chart, with Elijah McGuire, Darwin Thompson and Derrick Gore as competitors. This might be more opinion than fact, but it's also likely based on the team's usage of its RBs so far in training camp. If you're drafting, Darrel Williams should be the 2nd Chiefs RB off the board. Don't get too high on anyone other than CEH at the position for K.C., though. There's also still the possibility that the Chiefs add another RB.

The Chiefs believe they need to make more plays in the short and intermediate passing games, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Palmer notes that the team is looking to get the RBs more involved in the passing game (which we've heard multiple times this offseason) and adds that rookie TE Noah Gray could emerge as a factor with an increase in 2-TE sets. It's a situation to track this summer. There's certainly room for a 3rd viable fantasy option to emerge in Kansas City behind WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce. We might also just see Hill and Kelce set new career highs in target share this year.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire put an emphasis on his pass catching ability this offseason. “Talking to Coach [Andy] Reid and also Pat [Mahomes], there are some things we’re implementing to get the ball to the back and just spread it out more,” Edwards-Helaire said via the Kansas City Star. “That’s one of the reasons why I chose to work on my hands and just be more of a threat.” CEH went on to discuss his route-running potential both out of the slot and outside. As beat writer Sam McDowell points out, the Chiefs moved former WR coach (and NFL WR) Greg Lewis to RB coach. Call it a potential edge for a guy who caught 55 balls as an LSU senior. CEH remains a breakout candidate.

The Chiefs expect RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) to play against the Bills today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Le'Veon Bell (knee), on the other hand, is not expected to be active. That would leave CEH and Darrel Williams sharing the backfield work. Edwards-Helaire has not played since sustaining the dual injuries in Week 15 at New Orleans. He'll be risky for fantasy lineups in his 1st game back, but he's in play with limited RB options on a 2-game slate.

Chiefs RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) and Le'Veon Bell (knee) are listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship vs. the Bills. The rookie seems to have a better chance to play after getting in 3 limited practices this week. Bell was sidelined on Thursday and Friday, reportedly dealing with swelling in 1 of his knees. We'll look for updates on both guys on Sunday morning. Darrel Williams remains our bet to lead this backfield in touches on Sunday.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday. It's an upgrade over last week, when he was limited on Wednesday before missing the final 2 workouts. The rookie is seemingly trending toward playing vs. the Bills this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. The rookie was limited last Wednesday before sitting out the final 2 practices of the week and then missing the Browns game. We'll see what he does over the next 2 days leading up to Sunday's AFC Championship.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is officially inactive for today's matchup with Cleveland. As expected. Should the Chiefs advance, we'd expect CEH to return for the AFC Championship game.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) "has an uphill battle to play" against the Browns today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie missed practice on Thursday and Friday after being limited on Wednesday. If he's inactive, Kansas City will roll with RBs Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams. With Edwards-Helaire out for Week 16, Williams out-carried Bell 10 to 7 and out-targeted him 6 to 3.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Browns. After putting in a limited practice on Wednesday, he missed the final 2 workouts of the week. "A couple of days ago he moved around real well and then we just kind of backed off him," HC Andy Reid said Friday. "He's still doing stuff, just not with the group. We'll just see how he does." We imagine Edwards-Helaire will be limited if he suits up on Sunday. RBs Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams will pick up more action.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) missed Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or if this was a planned day off. We'll hopefully have a better idea of his status by tomorrow night.
