  • Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Struggles on SNF

    Edwards-Helaire rushed 13 times for 46 yards while losing a fumble in Sunday's 36-35 loss to the Ravens.

    The Chiefs dialed up only 16 designed running plays for their backs (despite leading for the majority of the contest) after running 15 of those same plays in Week 1. It appears that offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy wants to keep the ball in Patrick Mahomes' hands as much as possible this season, which seems like a smart move. It doesn't help that Edwards-Helaire isn't doing much with the limited touches he has been receiving (3.3 yards per carry). If this trend continues, then CEH's ceiling may be lower than many expected for 2021. Up next for the Chiefs is a divisional matchup against the Chargers next Sunday.

  • Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Held in check Sunday

    Edwards-Helaire carried the ball 14 times for 43 yards and caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 33-29 win over the Browns.

    The second-year back's longest run went for only nine yards, as the Browns' defense bottled things up on the ground. No other Kansas City back got more than one carry, however, so at least Edwards-Helaire is very clearly the top option in the backfield. Despite the floor provided by his touch volume, he could struggle to post better numbers on the road against the Ravens in Week 2.

  • Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Says he's ready for Week 1

    Edwards-Helaire (ankle) declared himself "ready to go" for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Browns, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The running back, who also noted that he's 100 percent healthy at this stage, is thus in line to head Kansas City's backfield in Week 1, backed up by Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon. Added context with regard to Edwards-Helaire's status will arrive later Wednesday, when the team reveals whether he was a full participant in its first official Week 1 practice.

  • Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Practices fully

    Edwards-Helaire (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday.

    Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star previously relayed that Edwards-Helaire declared himself "ready to go" for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Browns, a notion solidified by the running back's full practice participation. Heading into Week 1, Edwards-Helaire is on track to head Kansas City's rushing attack versus Cleveland, backed up by Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon.

  • Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Trending toward playing in Week 1

    Edwards-Helaire (ankle) practiced last week and is trending toward being available for Sunday's season opener against the Browns, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The same applies to fellow running back Darrel Williams (head), with coach Andy Reid noting Monday with regard to the duo's Week 1 status, "I think we'll be OK there." Added context with regard to Edwards-Helaire's progress will arrive no later than Wednesday, when Kansas City's first regular-season practice/injury report is submitted. Assuming he suits up Sunday, Edwards-Helaire is poised to lead the team's rushing attack, with Williams and Jerick McKinnon on hand to work in complementary/reserve roles.
