Won't play in wild-card round

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid ruled Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) out for Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Following a two-game absence to close the regular season, the second-year back looked to be on the right track to suit up this weekend after he practiced Wednesday in a limited capacity, but his odds of playing dipped when he regressed to no practice participation Thursday. Edwards-Helaire won't be on the field for Friday's practice session either, prompting Reid to rule him out since his shoulder injury "wasn't quite as good" as the team expected following Wednesday's workout, per Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com. Meanwhile, Darrel Williams (toe) is practicing Friday and is expected to be ready to play Sunday, leaving him in line to serve as Kansas City's lead back for the postseason opener.
