The Kansas City Chiefs could have Clyde-Edwards Helaire back in time for the Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday afternoon.
Kansas City Chiefs fans should be excited about the potential triumphant return of running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
The former first-round pick out of LSU has been on Injured Reserve with a knee injury. He last played for the Chiefs back in Week 5’s tight loss to the Buffalo Bills. Now that the Chiefs seem to have turned a corner offensively, he will be a welcomed addition to the Kansas City backfield with the NFC East juggernaut Dallas Cowboys coming to town. This will be a massive game on Sunday.
If the Chiefs can get anything out of Edwards-Helaire vs. the Cowboys, it will be an added bonus.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire injury update: Chiefs RB could play vs. Cowboys
Kansas City improved to 6-4 on the season by handling the arch rival Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday Night Football. It has not been smooth sailing for the two-time defending AFC champions, but it does feel like their best football is in front of them. As the offense gets back to its winning ways, having balance in the running game will be key in the Chiefs’ quest to get back to the Super Bowl.
On the year, Edwards-Helaire only has 65 carries for 304 yards and no trips to pay dirt. Kansas City made him the first running back taken in the 2020 NFL Draft for a reason, but his first two years in the league have thus far been underwhelming. If he wants to change the narrative on his Kansas City tenure, helping the Chiefs win the AFC West yet again will certainly help in that regard.
Though the Chiefs beat the Raiders, the Cowboys are among the best teams in the entire league.
