News: 6 days agoThe Chiefs placed Edwards-Helaire (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Spin: Edwards-Helaire will miss a minimum of four games while he recovers from a high-ankle sprain, with the Chiefs' Week 16 matchup with Seattle representing the earliest possible date for a return. Isiah Pacheco had supplanted him in the Kansas City backfield in recent weeks anyway, but Edwards-Helaire still had a role off the bench before injuring his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's win over the Chargers. It'll be Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon leading the way for the Chiefs over the next month, and Ronald Jones may also get some chances for the first time all season.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Edwards-Helaire hasn't quite lived up to expectations since being drafted in the first round of the 2020 draft. The LSU product has missed 10 regular-season games and has yet to produce a top-20 fantasy campaign. Even if we exclude a Week 5 game he left injured last season, Edwards-Helaire ranked 22nd among backs in fantasy PPG. Perhaps even more concerning, he was out-snapped 102-to-35 by Jerick McKinnon during two playoff games together. There's still hope for Edwards-Helaire, as he's only 23 years old and his chief competition for snaps in one of the league's top offenses is newcomer Ronald Jones II. "CEH" is safest as a flex, but there's some post-hype appeal here.
