KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will not play for the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Chiefs declared Edwards-Helaire out for the game on Saturday, saying he did not travel with the team to Cincinnati.
Edwards-Helaire, who leads the Chiefs with 517 rushing yards, injured one shoulder in last week’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and did not train all week.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that Edwards-Helaire is considered week-to-week with a bruised shoulder.
Chiefs activated running back Jerick McKinnon from the injured reserve and he will be available to play against the Bengals. McKinnon had been on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.
Chiefs will also have Darrel Williams and Derrick Gore available at running back on Sunday. Williams is the Chiefs’ second-leading rusher with 453 yards. Williams is also fourth on the Chiefs with 41 receptions.
Gore was raised from the training squad early in the season. He has 189 rushing yards.
