Has a chance to play Sunday

Coach Andy Reid noted Wednesday that "there's a chance" Edwards-Helaire (ankle) could come off IR ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bengals, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Edwards-Helaire, who hasn't played since suffering a high-ankle sprain during Week 11 action, appears to be inching toward a potential return to the mix as soon as this weekend. If he's available Sunday, Edwards-Helaire would bolster a Kansas City backfield that's been led of late by Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.
