KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said during a press conference Friday that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be out this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Edwards-Helaire was spotted at practice Wednesday, but ultimately Reid said he will miss another game.

Reid said everyone else practiced and "got some good work in," including Tyreek Hill and Darrel Williams. Both are expected to make appearances against Pittsburgh following injuries in Denver.

With the postseason just beginning, some coaches are interviewing and thinking ahead to the next season. But in Kansas City, Reid says his staff is reigned in and not distracted.

Although, he is hopeful this could be a breakout year for offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.

"It disappoints me that someone hasn't hired him yet, because he is so good ... I think that changes this year," Reid said.

Running back Jerick McKinnon said the Steelers are a "championship team, too." So while it might be "tough," he's excited for the opportunity after fighting through an injury earlier this season.

And as Sunday inches closer, defensive lineman Chris Jones could barely contain himself as he echoed McKinnon's excitement.
