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.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. The rookie was active but didn’t play a snap last week. He should be back in the lead role in Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins.

It sounds like RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be limited after missing practice on Thursday and Friday with an illness. Exactly how limited he'll be is uncertain, but the rookie now looks like a risk/reward fantasy play. Bell is an upside RB3 or flex option.

The Chiefs are "hopeful" RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) can play against the Broncos tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie missed the final 2 practices of the week with a non-COVID illness but was reportedly feeling better on Saturday. The Chiefs will see how CEH feels when he gets to the stadium before making a final decision on his status. We probably won't know whether he's playing until inactives come out around 7 pm ET, so fantasy owners should try to roster a backup option from either this game, the 2 Monday nighters or Tuesday's Cowboys-Ravens game.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) missed the final 2 practices of the week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Broncos. Assuming this isn’t COVID, CEH should play vs. Denver. But it’s possible that the missed practice time limits the rookie’s role. Stay tuned to Shark Bites for updates on his status.

The NFL is postponing Sunday's Patriots-Chiefs game, though they still expect to play it either Monday or Tuesday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "Tuesday is more likely." That would keep players from those teams -- minus Cam Newton -- available for Week 4 fantasy football lineups, though all would obviously be off the main DFS slate. We'll continue watching for further updates. A postponement to Tuesday was also the initial plan for Steelers-Titans before that game ultimately got moved to Week 7. So far, at least, this situation doesn't include multiple positive tests amid either team.

The Athletic's Nate Taylor believes Darrel Williams will enter the season as the Chiefs' #2 RB. Williams has reportedly been splitting 1st-team reps with rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire and showing well in all aspects. “He’s done a hell of a job,” OC Eric Bieniemy said. “He’s smart, he can run it, he does a great job of picking up the blitz, and he’s also good in the pass game, as far as catching passes out on the perimeter.” Williams has mustered just 3.4 yards per carry on 54 attempts in Kansas City over the past 2 seasons -- although he's averaged a nice 10.8 yards on 18 receptions. We're ultimately still expecting a committee backfield with Williams, DeAndre Washington and potentially Darwin Thompson if Edwards-Helaire misses time. So we're not going out of our way to draft any of these Chiefs backups. But Williams is worth a look in super deep fantasy leagues.

We've heard nothing but praise for Chiefs rookie RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire's performance in training camp so far. The latest buzz comes from Chiefs GM Brett Veach, who told Sports Illustrated's Peter King that CEH is "on pace to have a big year, to be our primary ballcarrier." King, meanwhile, raved about Edwards-Helaire after watching a couple of practices. "He appears a confident and sure runner who can make people miss, a better runner between the tackles than a 5-foot-8, 209-pound guy should be, and a smooth and assured receive," King writes. A perfect fit in the explosive Chiefs offense, Edwards-Helaire is worth a pick anywhere in the back half of Round 1.
