RB: Clyde Edwards-Helaire

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire will miss a few weeks with an MCL sprain suffered in Week 5's loss to Buffalo.

It's actually a pretty fortunate update from how it looked last night, where Edwards-Helaire was carried off the field by teammates. Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon stand to gain the most from Edwards-Helaire's injury. Williams led the team with 37 snaps and five carries last night, and should be the lead back, while McKinnon mixed in mostly on passing downs.
