    Elijah McGuire: Getting look from KC

    Elijah McGuire will head to Kansas City for a visit with the Chiefs, Field Yates of ESPN reports.With the team concerned starting back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a high-ankle sprain and a strained hip during Sunday's win over New Orleans, contingency plans are therefore needed at the position. McGuire offers experience with 591 rushing yards over 180 career carries for the Jets, but he hasn't played in a game in two years. Another former Jet, two-time All-Pro Le'Veon Bell, joined the team in October after being cut by New York, and his Week 15 outing of 76 scrimmage yards and a touchdown was possibly his strongest yet as a Chief.

McGuire last played in 2018, when he suited up for the Jets and posted 276 yards and three touchdowns on 92 carries (3.0 yards per carry) and 193 yards and a score on 19 receptions.

The Cowboys are carrying just three running backs - Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard and Rico Dowdle -- to begin the year, and if any of them are injured, McGuire will likely be promoted to the active roster since he has versatility as a pass-catcher.

    Elijah McGuire signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.Damien Williams (ribs) and LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) were injured during Week 11's win over the Chargers, so the Chiefs are bringing in additional depth in case one or both are unable to play Sunday against the Raiders. McGuire last played in 2018 for the Jets, and he struggled on the ground with 2.7 YPC over the last four weeks but punched in three touchdowns.
