Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has fallen out of favor in the Kansas City backfield. He has not recorded double-digit carries in a game since Week 4. The third-year pro was struggling to produce even before his injury, and now it looks like that just took turn for the worse.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Injury Update

Head coach Andy Reid revealed on Wednesday that CEH would be added to Injured Reserve, which means he will be out for a minimum of four weeks with his high ankle sprain.

CEH isn't the only member of the Chiefs dealing with an injury, but now with CEH on IR, this backfield is Isiah Pacheco's to own. He has really dominated the snapshare in the last two games, grabbing at least 15 rushes in each contest. Jerrick McKinnon will still handle some of the rushing attack andmost of the passing down work, but we might not see CEH get a real chance in this backfield for the remainer fo the season.

The Chiefs are 15.5-point home favorites over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
