So, will he take the field tomorrow in the Chiefs' playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars?

It seems like the response is no. Field Yates of ESPN NFL reports that Edwards-Helaire was not taken off injured reserve in time

for the team's playoff game today. As a result, he won't participate tomorrow.

After starting the first six games of the season, Edwards-Helaire was reduced to spot action due to injuries,

subpar performance, and the emergence of youngster Isiah Pacheco.

He has 6 touchdowns and 453 yards from scrimmage in 10 games.

Pacheco, in the meantime, has embraced the position as the starting one (no pun intended).

His 7 games with at least 80 yards of scrimmage during the previous nine games, including the playoffs, are all included.

With the way they've been playing, Clyde Edwards-Helaire is more of an indulgence than a need for the Chiefs,

who can still activate him at some time during the postseason.

Since the Jaguars are considerably more susceptible to the throw than the run,

the run game may not even be that significant in tomorrow's game against them.

When it comes to the NFL playoffs, will Edwards-Helaire be seen at all?
