This will be the third consecutive game Edwards-Helaire has missed with the shoulder issue after being absent in the final two regular-season games. The ruling comes as no surprise as the lead back was a DNP in all three practices this week. It’s unclear when the second-year back will return if the Chiefs can advance in the postseason. Backup running back Darrel Williams is in line to get his third straight start, while Derrick Gore is likely to get some complementary action.
Edwards-Helaire has posted 138 touches for 646 scrimmage yards and six total touchdowns in ten games this season.
