In line for more work

McKinnon is slated for more touches for at least the next three games after the Chiefs placed Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports.

Edwards-Helaire was diagnosed with an MCL sprain in his left knee after his early departure from Kansas City's Week 5 loss to the Bills. During that contest, McKinnon received a season-high 32 percent share of the offensive snaps, but he managed just one carry for two yards and two catches (on two targets) for 13 yards. Meanwhile, new presumptive starting RB Darrel Williams logged 41 percent of the plays on offense en route to eight touches for 45 total yards. Williams is expected to be the early down and goal-line back in Edwards-Helaire's place, but McKinnon's pass-catching ability should result in a regular role moving forward.
