Edwards-Helaire will be out for at least four games as he recovers from a high-ankle sprain, with the Chiefs’ Week 16 game against Seattle representing the earliest possible return date.

In recent weeks, Isiah Pacheco had supplanted Edwards-Helaire in the Kansas City backfield, but Edwards-Helaire still had a role off the bench before injuring his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday’s win over the Chargers.

It’ll be Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon leading the way for the Chiefs over the next month, and Ronald Jones may also get some chances for the first time all season.

  • About Allen Robinson II

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Robinson (ankle) is not expected to play against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Robinson is officially listed as questionable due to a foot injury, but it appears he’s on the wrong track for Week 12, when Los Angeles’ offense will most likely be led by Bryce Perkins.

Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek will lead the wide receiver corps if Robinson is officially ruled out ahead of Sunday’s 4:25 p.m.

ET kickoff, with Brandon Powell, Tutu Atwell, Lance McCutcheon, and Jacob Harris also seeing increased opportunities.

Last Sunday night, the Chiefs won their fourth straight game, narrowly defeating the Chargers on the road.
