Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered an ankle sprain in Week 15 that has kept him sidelined since. Kansas City had the luxury of a first-round bye in the NFL Playoffs, and it looks like that added rest time could have a big payoff.
The Chiefs got a great update on CEH ahead of their Divisional Round matchup against the Cleveland Browns.
Even as a limited participant in practice, it's great sign that Edwards-Helaire is back and points to an encouraging outlook for his availability come Sunday.
The former LSU running back racked up 1,354 yards from scrimmage and 5 total TDs in his rookie season. With the RB out, backup Le'Veon Bell enjoyed an increased workload, but he suffered a knee injury and missed the team's regular-season finale.
CEH was projected to return around this time after first suffering the ankle sprain, so he looks right on track to make his playoff debut soon. Darwin Thompson could be the team's RB2 if Bell is unable to go against Cleveland.
The Chiefs enter their game against the Browns as impressive 10-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
