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 HC Andy Reid said Wednesday afternoon that QB Patrick Mahomes "feels good" after taking "all the snaps" in practice. Reid confirmed that Mahomes remains in the concussion protocol, but he continues to trend in the right direction for this weekend's AFC Championship vs. the Bills.

Update: The Chiefs listed Mahomes as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has no concussion symptoms as of Wednesday morning, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes is expected to have a "very light practice" on Wednesday, per Rapoport, and then "ramp up" through the rest of the week. If he stays symptom-free, he figures to be cleared for Sunday's AFC Championship vs. the Bills.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes cleared "some big steps" in the concussion protocol on Monday. He still has a ways to go -- but Mahomes is expected to practice on Wednesday, and there's "hope and optimism" he'll be able to play vs. the Bills this weekend. Schefter adds that Mahomes is also dealing with a foot injury, which was clearly bothering him in Sunday's win over the Browns before he exited with the head injury.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes sustained a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's Divisional Round win over the Browns. It's his 2nd documented concussion, with the 1st coming at Texas Tech back in 2014. Mahomes' progress through the protocol this coming week will be the biggest story in sports. If he's not cleared by Sunday, QB Chad Henne will get the start in the AFC Championship vs. the Bills.

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.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives the rookie a chance to return for this weekend's game vs. the Browns after going down in Week 15. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle), WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) and WR Sammy Watkins (calf) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Hill would likely play if this game meant anything to Kansas City. Edwards-Helaire and Watkins' statuses for the playoffs are unclear. The Chiefs have already said QB Patrick Mahomes won't play on Sunday. Don't expect to see TE Travis Kelce, either. RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is listed as questionable and probably won't play much, if at all.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid confirmed on Monday that "key starters" won't play in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Chargers. Kansas City has the AFC's #1 seed locked up. Don't expect to see QB Patrick Mahomes, WR Tyreek Hill or TE Travis Kelce on the field at all. WR Sammy Watkins and RB Le'Veon Bell also figure to be limited or sit out entirely. QB Chad Henne will draw the start for Kansas City. We'll look for clues on who the RB and WR snaps will go to.

Chiefs LB Ben Niemann left in the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Falcons with a hamstring injury. With Anthony Hitchens (COVID list) and Damien Wilson (knee) already inactive, that left Darius Harris and Willie Gay Jr. to lead the LB corps in playing time. Harris edged Gay by 5 snaps, but Gay posted a team-high 9 tackles (7 solo). Kansas City clinched the AFC's top playoff seed with the win, so a meaningless Week 17 would seem like the perfect spot to give the 2nd-round rookie another start and a long look -- especially with other LBs nursing injuries. We'll see how this week unfolds, though.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (illness) is active for today's game against the Falcons. He should be ready to use as you planned in IDP lineups.

11:12am EST 12/27/20

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the team “will monitor Hill and be smart with him.” There’s slightly elevated risk here, but Hill remains a strong Week 16 fantasy play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is expected to play vs. Atlanta today. Hill got in 2 limited practices this week, and we never heard any concern about his status. He remains an elite fantasy play.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He missed practice Thursday but returned for a full Friday workout, so Clark seems to be trending toward playing.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He got in 2 limited practices this week, and HC Andy Reid said he expects Hill to play. Keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now, but check back Sunday to make sure he's active.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring issue. The Kansas City Star's Sam McDowell described it as tightness. "I think he's going to be OK," HC Andy Reid said. Hamstrings can be tricky, so we'll keep a close eye on this. But it sounds like Hill is on track to play vs. the Falcons on Sunday.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and hip strain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The ankle injury is the bigger concern. CEH will miss the final 2 regular-season games, but the Chiefs are "hopeful" to get him back for the playoffs, per Rapoport. Assuming the Chiefs get the AFC's #1 seed, Edwards-Helaire will have 4 weeks to heal up for the team's postseason opener. Le'Veon Bell is set to take over as Kansas City's lead back in the meantime.
