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 (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Cowboys. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 5. NFL Network's James Palmer reported this morning that the Chiefs "really don't know how much" Edwards-Helaire will play today. That obviously makes him a risky fantasy start. Darrel Williams is the better bet in the Chiefs backfield.
NFL Network's James Palmer reports that the Chiefs "really don't know how much" RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) will play vs. the Cowboys today. "I’ve been told they’ll watch pregame warmups pretty closely," Palmer added. CEH has been sidelined since Week 5. And with RB Darrel Williams playing well in his place, there's no reason for Kansas City to rush Edwards-Helaire back into a big role. It's obviously a tricky fantasy situation that might be best to avoid in Week 11 lineups. If you're picking between the 2 Chiefs, we'd go Williams.
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.
