Injury roundup: Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire expected to play against Bills 

The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to have running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire in today's AFC Championship Game against the Buffalo Bills, a source tells NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Edwards-Helaire was listed as questionable on the injury report with ankle and hip ailments. The LSU product has not played since a Week 15 win over New Orleans.

Against Buffalo in Week 6, Edwards-Helaire rushed for 161 yards on 26 carries to help K.C. top the Bills, 26-17.

Running back Le'Veon Bell, however, is not expected to play. He was also listed as questionable with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) will be a game-time decision, according to Rapoport.

The Chiefs take on the Bills at Arrowhead Stadium at 6:40 p.m. ET with the winner advancing to the Super Bowl.

Here is other injury and roster news we're monitoring ahead of NFL Championship Sunday:

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Antoine Winfield Jr. (ankle) won't be able to play vs. the Packers, sources tell Rapoport and NFL Network's James Palmer. The team has since ruled out the rookie defensive back. Winfield suffered the injury in practice this week and was officially listed as questionable. He went through a lengthy on-field workout pre-game, but will not suit up despite the early optimism.
  • Green Bay Packers cornerback Kevin King (back) is active vs. the Bucs. The Packers DB was the only player designated as questionable.
