The Kansas City Chiefs have been without their No. 1 running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire ever since he suffered a sprained MCL in Week 5. He's managed to practice throughout the week, however, his latest injury update sends mixed signals.

Chiefs head coach told reports Friday that Edwards-Helaire had a great round of practices this week, however, he didn't address whether or not the rusher will be activated to face the Dallas Cowboys this weekend.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Injury Update

Edwards-Helaire was having a modest season before his MCL injury struck. The 22-year-old had carried the ball 65 times for 304 yards (4.7 per carry), however, he's yet to record a rushing touchdown in 2021. Nevertheless, he does have two receiving TDs on eight receptions (61 yards).

If Edwards-Helaire misses another week, Darrel Williams will continue operating as the Chiefs' starting RB. He's looked impressive since Week 6, racking up 470 total yards from scrimmage and a trio of touchdowns in five games.

While Edwards-Helaire will likely take over the backfield when he returns, it'll be interesting to see if Kansas City keeps Williams involved. After all, the team was 2-3 before the former got hurt and 4-1 without him.

The Chiefs are currently 2.5-point home favorites over the Cowboys, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
