Slated to go on IR

Edwards-Helaire (ankle) is expected to be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

The move will likely be made official later Wednesday, with Edwards-Helaire set to miss at least four games as a result of the transaction. Isiah Pacheco had already supplanted Edwards-Helaire as the Chiefs' lead back over the past few games, but while Edwards-Helaire is on the mend from a high-ankle sprain, Jerick McKinnon and Ronald Jones could receive additional opportunities in backup roles.
