Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire has put in a pair of full practices to open the week leading up to Sunday night's clash with the Bills. That comes after CEH was inactive for the Wild Card round win over the Steelers with his shoulder injury. Darrel Williams, meanwhile, sat out practice both Wednesday and Thursday with the toe injury that limited him to just 8 snaps against Pittsburgh. Jerick McKinnon, of course, emerged as the workhorse for that game. We'll see, though, how touches get distributed now that Edwards-Helaire appears on track for full availability.
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire revealed on the Arrowhead Addict podcast that he missed a bunch of time last offseason after undergoing gallbladder surgery in early March. "My gall bladder completely stopped working," CEH said. "I was down to about 160 pounds... I didn’t run, didn’t do anything all the way up until [OTAs] and was still dealing with stitches and recovery over the course of the summer.” That can at least be partly to blame for Edwards-Helaire's underwhelming 2021 campaign. This will actually be his 1st full offseason with the Chiefs, and Edwards-Helaire says he's "completely healthy." He added, "This offseason is gonna be perfect for me to do the things I need to do to have the season I feel like I should have." There remains plenty of fantasy appeal here -- largely because of the offense CEH is operating in. And he's cheaper than ever, with a 7th-round ADP in FFPC best-ball drafts.
NFL Network's James Palmer hears that Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) is "good to go" for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills. "They're not really looking at a snap count ... it's gonna be play it by ear," Palmer adds. It doesn't sound like Edwards-Helaire's shoulder will be a factor, but he might still lose snaps to RB Jerick McKinnon after McKinnon's strong showing in the Wild Card win.
Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. Meanwhile, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) was a full participant all week and will play against Buffalo. It's unclear exactly what this backfield split will look like after RB Jerick McKinnon's impressive showing in the Wild Card win over the Steelers.
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly puts him on track to return for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills. It's unclear, though, how touches will be divvied after RB Jerick McKinnon's impressive performance in the Wild Card Round. RB Darrel Williams (toe) did not practice on Wednesday.
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) is out for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. It looks like he suffered a setback after putting in a limited practice on Wednesday. CEH's absence again leaves Darrel Williams as Kansas City's lead back. Williams will be playing through a toe injury, so it's possible that we see more of RBs Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon.
