Chiefs activate RB Edwards-Helaire

The Kansas City Chiefs on Monday activated running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire from injured reserve, swapping places onto the active roster with wide receiver Mecole Hardman.

Hardman will miss the Super Bowl, as expected, with his own ongoing injury issues. Edwards-Helaire will be active for the first time since Week 11, when he sustained a high-ankle sprain against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Edwards-Helaire will rejoin the backfield of Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon, both of whom have picked up the slack in his absence. McKinnon has nine receiving touchdowns out of the backfield this season, eight in Edwards-Helaire’s absence. Pacheco led the Chiefs in rushing, with 830 yards during the regular season to go with five TDs. Pacheco is listed as the No. 1 RB with Edwards-Helaire No. 2. Edwards-Helaire rushed for 302 yards and three TDs before the injury. He also caught 17 passes for 151 yards and three TDs.

Hardman missed the second half of the regular season with a pelvis injury and was brought back in time for the AFC Championship Game. He was able to play just 15 offensive snaps before aggravating the injury. The Chiefs play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in Super Bowl LVII at Glendale, Ariz. –Field Level Media
