The Kansas City Chiefs will be without one of their receivers when they face Philadelphia in Super Bowl LVII, but they are getting a player back.
After missing the last nine games, the Chiefs have activated running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire from injured reserve, making him eligible to play on Sunday.

CEH, 23, began the season as the Chiefs’ feature back before going down in Week 11 with a high ankle sprain, totaling 453 yards from scrimmage. Jerick McKinnon and emerging rookie Isiah Pacheco have carried the load for Kansas City in his absence.
In a corresponding move, the Chiefs have placed WR Mecole Hardman on injured reserve with a pelvis injury. His 4.3 speed made him a vertical threat in the offense, and now Patrick Mahomes will have to hope that WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster and Kadarius Toney are able to push through their lingering injuries.
