Masters named Edwards-Helaire, who suffered an MCL sprain during the Chiefs Sunday night football The 5-week loss to Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, November 10, opens a 21-day window for the team to activate him. As of this writing, the Chiefs have 14 days left in the three-week clock.

Speaking to the media on Friday before the Chiefs’ Week 10 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, Reid said Edwards-Helaire was a “stretch” to play.

The Chiefs ’match against the Cowboys will also lead to a farewell week – and Reid confirmed that this could affect whether Kansas City brings him back.

“There’s a chance we’re going in that direction,” Reid said. “We’ll just look at how he’s doing this week, and then we’ll move on. If we feel like he’s not ready, we won’t put him there.”

In the five games he participated in this season, Edwards-Helaire rushed 65 times for 304 yards (4.7 yards per attempt) while bringing in eight receptions at 61 yards and two receiving touchdowns.
