Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Bengals. Edwards-Helaire was a longshot to play after not practicing all week. The early rule out puts him in a race to get cleared for Week 18. Kansas City activated Jerick McKinnon from IR with Edwards-Helaire out. Darrel Williams will start for the Chiefs and should see a heavy workload in his absence.

Bengals RT Riley Reiff (ankle) is out for the year. Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Friday that Reiff is done for the season, though it's not clear if that's due to COVID-19 or the ankle injury that has sidelined him in recent weeks. It's a significant development for a Bengals offense that has struggled to keep Joe Burrow clean in the pocket. A star run blocker, Reiff's absence is also bad news for Joe Mixon.
