MCL sprain to sideline Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire ‘a few weeks,’ source says


Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament on Sunday night and is expected to miss “a few weeks,” a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday.

Edwards-Helaire exited the Chiefs’ 38-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills with the injury to his left knee in the third quarter.

Edwards-Helaire, who entered the game as the Chiefs’ leading rusher with 291 yards, was helped off the field by teammates after getting tackled following a screen pass with 8 minutes, 8 seconds remaining in the third quarter.

He finished with 13 yards on seven carries and one catch for 11 yards after back-to-back 100-yard rushing games.

The Chiefs were left with veterans Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon at running back. Williams rushed for 52 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in the loss.

Sunday night’s loss dropped the Chiefs to 2-3 on the season.

ESPN’s Adam Teicher contributed to this report.
