Sport

Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire missed practice again Friday with an illness.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid, though, is optimistic about Edwards-Helaire’s availability for Sunday.

“We think we’re going to get him back,” Reid said, via Nate Taylor of TheAthletic.com.

Edwards-Helaire has a stomach virus.

The Chiefs have Le’Veon Bell and Darrel Williams behind Edwards-Helaire, who has 181 touches for 926 yards and five touchdowns.

The Chiefs have ruled out linebacker Dorian O’Daniel (ankle). O’Daniel didn’t practice this week.
