Shark Bites

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.

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.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire sprained the MCL in his left knee in Sunday night's loss to the Bills. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the injury will keep him out for "a few weeks." Kansas City has just Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon behind Edwards-Helaire on the roster, with Derrick Gore the only RB on the practice squad. We'd bet on them adding someone else this week, though anything short of a trade is unlikely to bring in a RB with immediate fantasy football relevance. Williams figures to be the lead back for an upside scoring matchup with Washington in Week 6. After that come soft RB matchups with the Titans, Giants and Packers.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire injured his left leg in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game vs. the Bills. He was in obvious pain and had to be helped off the field by teammates. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: K.C. quickly ruled him out for the game with a left knee injury.

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.
