NFL injury updates, latest league news from Tuesday, Jan. 4

Clyde Edwards-Helaire wasn’t involved Tuesday as the Kansas City Chiefs began on-field preparations for Week 18. He might be available when they next hit the playing field.

The Chiefs running back has a chance to play Saturday versus the Broncos, per coach Andy Reid. Edwards-Helaire missed Kansas City’s Week 17 loss to Cincinnati after suffering a shoulder injury the week prior. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport previously reported that tests showed there was swelling but no structural damage on CEH’s injured collarbone.

The second-year back is second on the Chiefs in rushing but has typically been the primary option when healthy.

Offensive tackle Orlando Brown (calf) practiced Tuesday, and the team is optimistic he will be ready to play this weekend.
