Chiefs receive worrying update on Clyde Edwards-Helaire

Chiefs Clyde Edwards-Helaire

The Chiefs might be without one of their star running backs…again. Clyde Edwards-Helaire was listed on Kansas City’s most recent injury report on Friday for an illness. The injury report did not list his participation status for Wednesday through Friday’s practices. However, it did label him as questionable for their Sunday night matchup.

Edwards-Helaire just returned to the game day field in their Week 12 win against the Cowboys. Prior to this, the running back missed five games due to an MCL sprain (knee) he sustained in Week 5. Edwards-Helaire ran the ball for 63 yards and logged his first touchdown of the season in his triumphant return.

Despite only playing in six of the Chiefs’ 11 games so far this season, Edwards-Helaire has the most rushing yards for Kansas City. He has 367 total rushing yards, with Darrel Williams right behind him at 358 yards. If Edwards-Helaire is unable to play, Sunday Night Football fans can expect to see more out of Williams. He leads the Chiefs in both rushing attempts at 100 and rushing touchdowns with four.

Coming off of their Bye Week, the 7-4 Chiefs will attempt to extend their lead in the AFC West. The 6-5 Broncos are also dealing with injuries, including their star running back Melvin Gordon. He has been downgraded to doubtful, giving rookie Javonte Williams a chance to start in his place.
