Clyde Edwards-Helaire's status revealed for AFC Championship Game
The Kansas City Chiefs’ injury situation has been one of the biggest storylines heading into Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Buffalo Bills.
While Patrick Mahomes is out of concussion but dealing with turf toe, the Chiefs will have leading rusher Clyde Edwards-Helaire according to NFL insider Jay Glazer of FOX. The former LSU standout has dealt with ankle and hip injuries and missed Kansas City’s win over the Cleveland Browns last Sunday to secure a spot in the conference title game.
Edwards-Helaire led the Chiefs’ ground attack this season with 181 carries for 803 yards and 4 touchdowns. The rookie also had 36 receptions for 297 yards and a TD.
In the absence of Edwards-Helaire, fellow former Tiger Darrel Williams led the way on the ground with 13 carries for 78 yards. It could be an all-LSU rushing attack for Kansas City on Sunday as Le’Veon Bell is expected to miss Sunday’s game due a knee injury.
Buffalo-Kansas City is set for 6:40 p.m. ET on CBS.
