RB: Clyde Edwards-Helaire

Chiefs placed RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) on injured reserve.

This was expected after Edwards-Helaire was said to miss "a few weeks" for recovery. Darrel 'The Mentor' Williams closed Sunday night's blowout with five touches (and four targets) to Jerick McKinnon’s one after Edwards-Helaire was helped off the field in the third quarter, suggesting Williams will be treated as a workhorse without CEH for the team's soft upcoming schedule against The Football Team, Titans, Giants, Packers, Raiders, and Cowboys. McKinnon has also handled just one carry all year. The team additionally signed RB Derrick Gore from the practice squad as insurance.
