Chiefs HC Andy Reid reportedly told GM Brett Veach that he thinks 1st-round rookie RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire is better than Brian Westbrook. Westbrook, of course, spent 8 seasons playing for Reid in Philadelphia, topping 1,200 total yards 5 times. The 2 backs are definitely similar from a size and athleticism standpoint. Westbrook checked into the Combine at 5'9 and 200 pounds, ran a 4.57-second 40 and posted a 37-inch vertical. Edwards-Helaire: 5'7, 207 pounds with a 4.60-second 40 and 39.5-inch vertical. If CEH truly is better than Westbrook, he's in for big fantasy production. Westbrook turned in 4 career top-10 finishes and 2 more inside the top 20.
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire is inactive for the Super Bowl. He wasn't listed on this week's injury report after being activated from IR, so this is a healthy scratch. Kansas City will again roll with RBs Isiah Pacheco, Jerick McKinnon and Ronald Jones vs. the Eagles.
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) has been activated from IR. It makes him eligible to play in Sunday's Super Bowl, although it's still unclear if he will. Edwards-Helaire has been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 11. If he does play against the Eagles, he'll likely be used sparingly behind RBs Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.
Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Thursday that RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Jaguars on Saturday. CEH was designated to return from IR and has been practicing this week, but he evidently needs a bit more time to recover from his November 20 high-ankle sprain. Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon will continue to handle the majority of backfield work for Kansas City this weekend, with Ronald Jones potentially sprinkling in.
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) has been designated to return from IR and practiced on Tuesday. He's been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 11. We'll see if CEH is cleared to play in this weekend's Divisional Round game vs. the Jaguars, but his role was dwindling before that injury. Edwards-Helaire totaled just 10 carries and 5 targets on 38 snaps over his last 3 games.
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (high-ankle sprain) appears to be nearing a return from IR. HC Andy Reid said ahead of Saturday's win over Seattle that CEH is "working his tail off" and "getting close," according to Pete Sweeney of Arrowhead Pride. We're certainly not playing to stick Edwards-Helaire back into fantasy football lineups this season. But he could complicate the work split for RBs Jerick McKinnon and Isiah Pacheco if he gets back to the active roster for Week 17 or 18.
