Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) will be activated from IR and play vs. the Cowboys on Sunday, NFL Network's James Palmer reports. CEH has been out since Week 5, and RB Darrel Williams has played well in his absence. So it's unclear exactly how backfield touches will be divvied vs. Dallas. Over the first 4 games of the season, Edwards-Helaire averaged 14.5 carries and 2 targets to Williams' 5.3 carries and 1.3 targets. We'd expect the split to be closer on Sunday.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid wouldn't say Friday whether RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) will play vs. the Cowboys this weekend. Reid did say that CEH had a "good week of practice." Kansas City would need to activate Edwards-Helaire from IR by 4 pm ET on Saturday to make him eligible to play against Dallas. If he remains out, Darrel Williams will once again be a borderline RB1 play.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) has a "pretty good chance" to return for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. CEH got back to practice last week after going down back in Week 5. It's unclear what kind of role Edwards-Helaire will be returning to, though, after RB Darrel Williams played well in his absence.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Friday that it's "probably a stretch" for RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) to play vs. the Raiders on Sunday night. CEH got back on the practice field this week and looked good, according to Reid, but it sounds like he's targeting a Week 11 return. Kansas City would need to activate Edwards-Helaire by Saturday at 4 pm ET if he's going to play vs. Vegas, so we'll know for sure then. For now, it looks like Darrel Williams will get another game as lead back.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) has been designated to return and was on the practice field Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. CEH has been sidelined since spraining his knee back in Week 5. We'll see if he's ready to play against the Raiders on Sunday night. Edwards-Helaire figured to be in a timeshare with RB Darrel Williams when he does return.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) has been activated from IR, putting him on track to play vs. the Chiefs on Sunday. He's not a bankable fantasy option with QB Jordan Love under center but could emerge as an asset when QB Aaron Rodgers returns.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) remains on IR and won't play vs. the Packers this weekend. HC Andy Reid only said Friday that CEH is "closer" to returning. (We'd hope so!). "We'll have to see how time handles it here in the next couple of weeks," Reid added. RB Darrel Williams will get at least 1 more start on Sunday -- and potentially more starts beyond that.

The Packers have designated WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling to return from IR. He seemed on track to return from his hamstring injury in time to play Arizona last Thursday night but ultimately didn't. We'd guess that MVS will be back on the active roster for this Sunday's upside matchup with Kansas City, but we'll watch to make sure he's actually activated. Designating him to return merely opens the window for Valdes-Scantling to return to practice. The team could still wait up to 3 weeks before moving him to the active roster.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears that it "doesn’t look good" for Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling to return for tonight's game vs. the Cardinals. Green Bay could certainly use MVS, but it sounds like that hamstring still isn't ready. The team needs to decide whether to activate Valdes-Scantling by 4 pm ET today, so we'll know his status by then.

Insider Doug Kyed reports that Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) is tentatively expected back for Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. He's been out since hurting his hamstring late in Week 3. Valdes-Scantling's return would be excellent timing for a Green Bay squad down WRs Davante Adams and Allen Lazard. MVS could step right back into a significant role, although he also carries some risk in his 1st game off a 4-week absence.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes cleared concussion protocol, HC Andy Reid said after Sunday's loss to the Titans. We'll keep an eye on Mahomes this coming week, but it looks like he'll be available for next Monday night's game vs. the Giants.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes took a knee to the head as he was falling to the ground in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. Tennessee. He was noticeably woozy as he was helped off the field. Mahomes will certainly be checked for a concussion. We'll update his status when we know more.

Chiefs DL Chris Jones (hand/wrist) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) are active for today's game against the Titans.

The Chiefs have ruled LB Anthony Hitchens out for Sunday's game against the Titans. He's listed on the injury report with a triceps contusion, but it sounds like a nerve issue in his right elbow might be more significant. His absence leaves Ben Niemann and Nick Bolton as the likely LB leaders, with Bolton the more attractive IDP option. DL Chris Jones (hand) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) are questionable for the game. Jones had missed time with a wrist injury but appears to have moved on from that. He finished the week with a full practice. Ward put in limited practices all week.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. Kelce should play his usual role on Sunday against the Titans.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. Tennessee, but check back tomorrow to see how he's listed on the final injury report.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He got banged up in last week's win over Washington but was able to return and looked just fine. He should be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Titans, but we'll update his status again tomorrow.

In addition to the change at safety, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Chiefs' defensive alterations could include "possibly more Nick Bolton and Willie Gay together at linebacker." It'll be a tough situation to read for IDP value before we see the new snap distribution among Chiefs LBs. We did move Anthony Hitchens down the Week 6 LB rankings, though.

The Chiefs have ruled DL Chris Jones (wrist) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) out for Sunday's game at Washington. LB Anthony Hitchens (knee) is questionable. He finished the week with a full Friday workout, though. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Chiefs placed RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) on IR. So we now know that he'll miss at least the next 3 games vs. Washington, Tennessee and the Giants. It sounds like there's a good chance he's ready when first eligible to return in Week 9. Darrel Williams is the favorite to step in as Kansas City's lead back in the meantime, with Jerick McKinnon mixing in on passing downs.
