A week after dominating backfield time in the win over the Bucs, Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire once again fell behind Jerick McKinnon in snaps (38-31) in Monday night's win over the Raiders. He still led K.C. in rushing attempts but took his 9 carries for just 15 yards (1.5 per attempt). CEH also edged McKinnon in targets, 4-3, catching 3 balls for 20 yards. He narrowly missed reaching the end zone on 2 occasions. McKinnon rushed 8 times for 53 yards (6.6) and caught 2 passes for 19 yards. Isiah Pacheco logged just 1 carry for no gain. The Tampa Bay game remains the only time this year that K.C.'s backfield work has swung so strongly in Edwards-Helaire's favor.
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.
