For a Kansas City Chiefs offense that is in dire need of a spark from any player, the unit will have to wait a bit more to see running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire make his return to in-game action.

Edwards-Helaire has been sidelined since suffering a notable MCL injury during the Chiefs' Week 5 home loss to the Buffalo Bills. The former LSU standout needed help in getting off the field after being tackled by a trio of Bills defenders during the third quarter.

Much was speculated at the time that the injury would end his season. But as NFL Network's Ian Rapoport later noted, he was provided with a timeline of being out for a mere “few weeks.”

Now, as pointed out by ESPN’s Field Yates, Edwards-Helaire still has not yet been designated to return from injured reserve. Until then, he is not yet allowed to join the rest of the team for its weekly scheduled practice sessions.

While Yates further notes that Darrel Williams will remain as Kansas City's feature back for the time being, Derrick Gore may also continue to receive more snaps on offense. He is just coming off of a performance against the New York Giants in Week 8 when he recorded 48 rushing yards on a 4.4 yards per rush attempt average.

The Chiefs are currently set to host the Green Bay Packers for a much-anticipated showdown in Week 9.
