Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) remains on track for Kansas City

The Kansas City Chiefs think running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) is "heading in the right direction" to play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, reports James Palmer of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Palmer essentially repeated what Chiefs head coach Andy Reid offered on Monday. Edwards-Helaire, who missed the last two games of the regular season, is expected to be ready for Sunday's postseason matchup with the Steelers. Darrel Williams is also expected to be available after injuring his toe last game.
