Head coach Andy Reid told reporters in his Monday press conference that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is close to returning from his sprained MCL.
“I think he has a better shot [to play] this week. Pretty good chance,” Reid said, via Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star.

Edwards-Helaire has been out since suffering the injury in Kansas City’s Week 5 loss to Buffalo. It will be interesting to see if CEH steps back into the top spot. Williams ran 11 times for 43 yards, but more impressively caught nine passes for 101 yards and a TD. CEH hasn't caught more than three balls in any of his seven games so far this season. The Chiefs have been forced to check down more and Edward-Helaire will need to be involved in the passing game to be a safe fantasy starter again.
