Report: Chiefs’ Clyde Edwards-Helaire likely done for regular season, could return for playoffs
There are some reports of the impending status of Kansas City chief RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire who suffered a nasty injury against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon.
Andy Reid revealed during his post-game press conference that Edwards-Helaire's x-rays were negative, which is a positive sign that he has avoided serious injuries like fractures and fractures. In a new report, the NFL Network's Ian Rapaport confirmed both hip and ankle injuries for Edwards-Helaire. He will have an MRI scan for these injuries once the team is back in Kansas City and these tests could reveal possible ligament damage.
Rapoport's report also states that there is an expectation that Edwards-Helaire will not be able to return for the final two regular season games, but there is a chance he may return for the playoffs.
Rapoport later responded to his report on "Good Morning Football" from the NFL Network.
Edwards-Helaire finished the game against the Saints with 14 transfers for 79 yards. If he can't play for the remainder of the regular season, he's finished his rookie year with 217 touches for 1,098 scrimmage yards and five combined touchdowns. Given the injuries the team has dealt with on offense, it wouldn't be a bad rookie campaign.
Thankfully, the Chiefs added Le'Veon Bell for that very reason. He has been used as the bell cow for the team in the last two games. He's also had his most prolific game in Kansas City with 15 transfers for 62 yards and one score.
