    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Leads backfield in Super Bowl loss

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire had nine carries for 64 yards during Kansas City's 31-9 loss to Tampa Bay during Super Bowl LV. He also secured two of three targets for 23 yards.Edwards-Helaire resurfaced as the clear No. 1 back while Darrel Williams (two carries) and Le'Veon Bell (zero touches) were relegated to backup duties, but with the Kansas City Chiefs playing from behind almost from start to finish, he wasn't afforded many opportunities. Williams (seven targets) did see more action in the passing game than Edwards-Helaire, but he also had a costly drop in the third quarter on a would-be touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes. All things said, Edwards-Helaire put together a healthy rookie season, with 181 carries for 803 yards (4.4 YPC) and four scores across 13 regular-season games, in addition to 36 catches (54 targets) and one more touchdown. However, his production scarcely lived up to the first-round draft capital that was required to grab him in most fantasy leagues. After apparently breaking out with 161 rushing yards against the Bills in Week 6, Edwards-Helaire failed to break the 50-yard mark on the ground in all but two of his remaining seven contests. There's no question that Edwards-Helaire is talented enough to warrant consideration as a potential breakout candidate in Year 2, and he certainly stands to benefit from Kansas City's offensive line getting healthy, but this could shape up to be a pivotal offseason for the former LSU standout.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Upgrades to full practice

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) was a full practice participant Thursday.This is the rookie's first full practice since he suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 15. He did return for the AFC Championship Game, but the Bills limited him to seven yards (and a TD) on seven touches and 49 percent snap share. It's possible Edwards-Helaire takes on a larger share of backfield work in the Super Bowl, at which point he'll be another two weeks removed from the initial injury.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Limited at practice

    The Kansas City Chiefs listed Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report.Edwards-Helaire returned from a month-long absence to suit up in last weekend's 38-24 win over the Bills in the AFC Championship Game, taking six carries for seven yards and a touchdown while playing 49 percent of offensive snaps. He should be ready for the Feb. 7 Super Bowl matchup with the Buccaneers, likely splitting work out of the backfield with Darrel Williams. The Chiefs also hope to have Le'Veon Bell (knee) available, though his role isn't likely to be significant behind the top two options on the depth chart.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Gets first career playoff TD

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire registered seven yards and one touchdown on six carries while catching one of two targets for zero yards during Sunday's 38-24 win against Buffalo in the AFC Championship Game.The first-round rookie back hadn't appeared in a game since Week 15, having been beleaguered by a left ankle sprain and a left hip strain suffered during the Kansas City Chiefs' win over New Orleans. Edwards-Helaire was a limited participant throughout the practice week, however, and he ultimately showed enough to the training staff to earn his first career playoff nod. While Le'Veon Bell (knee) was deemed inactive Sunday, Darrel Williams paced the backfield in carries (13) and rushing yards (52) while registering Kansas City's only other rushing score of the evening. Edwards-Helaire may have more of a role in the Super Bowl, as he'll be afforded two weeks to recuperate further before a Sunday, Feb. 7 matchup against the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay, the first team in league history to host a Super Bowl at its home stadium, boasts the NFL's most prohibitive rush defense.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Suits up Sunday

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.Fellow running back Le'Veon Bell (knee) is inactive, so the availability of Edwards-Helaire -- who hasn't played since Week 15 -- is a welcome one for Kansas City. However, with Darrel Williams also on hand and having run well in last weekend's divisional-round win over the Browns, it remains to be how much action Edwards-Helaire will be in line to see Sunday. How Edwards-Helaire's ankle responded during warmups, as well as game flow figure to be key factors in how that plays out against Buffalo.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Expected to suit up Sunday

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) is expected to be available for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Meanwhile, fellow running back Le'Veon Bell (knee) isn't expected to play in the contest. If Edwards-Helaire -- who hasn't played since Week 15 -- indeed gains clearance ahead of the 6:40 p.m. ET kickoff, how much action he'd be in line to see is uncertain, with Schefter noting that the rookie's workload will depend on how he feels in pregame warmups. Should Edwards-Helaire end up sitting out versus Buffalo or handling only a limited role, Darrel Williams would continue to see expanded duties out of the Kansas City backfield.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Listed as questionable

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Buffalo.Le'Veon Bell (knee) also is listed as questionable, after missing practice Thursday and Friday. Edwards-Helaire was a limited participant each day this week, making his bid to play in a game for the first time since Week 15. With both Edwards-Helaire and Bell looking truly questionable, Darrel Williams could maintain a key role in the KC backfield, after he took 17 touches for 94 yards in the wild-card win over Cleveland. Bell got only three carries last week, so he could fall out of the picture even if he's healthy enough to play.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Another limited practice

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) remained limited at practice Thursday.Meanwhile, Le'Veon Bell (knee) didn't practice Thursday, which sets the stage for Friday's session to be pivotal with regard to the official status -- heading into Championship weekend -- of two key members of the Kansas City's backfield. At present, Darrel Williams is the team's top healthy running back option. Edwards-Helaire -- who led the Kansas City Chiefs with 803 rushing yards in 13 regular-season outings -- last saw game action Week 15.

    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Limited in practice to start week

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.Edwards-Helaire was also a limited participant last Wednesday, before downgrading to no participation Thursday and Friday and then being inactive for the Kansas City Chiefs' divisional-round win over the Browns. He'll likely follow a different routine this week, as Adam Schefter of ESPN suggested the rookie running back was gearing up to play Sunday against the Bills for the first time since Week 15.
