On Sunday night, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid provided an injury update following his team’s 38-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 5.

The head coach said that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire hurt his left knee. Edwards-Helaire left the game in the third quarter and was quickly ruled out for the game. Reid added the Chiefs would see how it goes with Edwards-Helaire’s knee issue overnight.

Edwards-Helaire, who entered Sunday night with back-to-back 100-yard games, looked noticeably unsettled immediately following the play in which he was injured.

“Obviously he’s upset, he just wants to play,” said quarterback Patrick Mahomes. “He had the injury at the end of last year. He’s been rolling these last few weeks. He’s upset. I didn’t get to talk to him after yet, but hopefully it’s nothing too serious and we can get him back before the end of the season.”

Reid also passed along word of four other injuries of note.

“Tyreek (Hill) also hurt his knee a little bit,” said Reid. “Then, (Joe) Thuney fractured a hand. Then, Chris Lammons had a skin laceration, and he’ll be fine. Then, (Travis) Kelce had a little bit of a stinger.”

Reid is scheduled to speak to the media via Zoom on Monday at Noon, but greater clarity on the injury front is likely to come Wednesday with the first official injury report leading into the team’s game against the Washington Football Team next weekend.
