Isiah Pacheco leaves with concussion; Week 17 in doubt

Isiah Pacheco Headshot

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco suffered a concussion in the second half against the Raiders and has been ruled out for the game. The timing (Monday afternoon) cuts down on Pacheco's chances of making it back for a Sunday afternoon meeting with the Bengals in Week 17. If Pacheco's out, that would leave Clyde Edwards-Helaire to lead the backfield against a soft Cincinnati defense. (Jerick McKinnon's on IR.) The Bengals allowed 397 total yards to the Steelers and 424 to the Vikings over the past two weeks. CEH would merit low-RB2 consideration if he's set to start for K.C. in Week 17. We'll watch Pacheco's status throughout the week.
