KANSAS CITY, Mo. – It keeps getting worse for the Kansas City Chiefs. Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was knocked out of Sunday night’s AFC title game rematch against the Buffalo Bills with a right knee injury sustained in the third quarter.
The extent of the injury is unknown, but the second-year pro was carried off the field by teammates Tyreek Hill and Darrel Williams, unable to put pressure on his right leg. He was injured while tackled after moving the chains with an 11-yard reception in the flat.
Three plays later, Bills safety Micah Hyde intercepted a Patrick Mahomes pass that deflected off Hill’s hands and returned the pick 26 yards for a touchdown that extended Buffalo’s lead to 31-13.
