Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire inactive for Super Bowl LVII

Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was among the Kansas City Chiefs’ inactives for Super Bowl LVII on Sunday evening.

The decision came as a surprise after the Chiefs activated him off injured reserve Monday, swapping him onto the active roster in favor of placing wide receiver Mecole Hardman on IR.

Edwards-Helaire had already lost his starting job earlier this season to rookie Isiah Pacheco before suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He missed the remainder of the regular season and the Chiefs’ two playoff games while recovering.

The Chiefs’ running back depth chart for the Super Bowl will be Pacheco No. 1, Jerick McKinnon No. 2 and Ronald Jones No. 3.

Edwards-Helaire, 23, finished the season with just 71 carries for 302 yards and three touchdowns and 17 receptions for 151 yards and another three TDs in 10 games (six starts). The 2020 first-round pick has 1,622 rushing yards, 11 touchdowns, 577 receiving yards and six receiving scores in his three-year NFL career.

The Chiefs’ other inactives are quarterback Shane Buechele, tight end Blake Bell, offensive linemen Darian Kinnard and Austin Reiter and defensive ends Malik Herring and Joshua Kaindoh.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ inactives are quarterback Ian Book, running back Trey Sermon, wide receiver Greg Ward, linebacker Kyron Johnson, cornerback Josiah Scott, safety Anthony Harris and punter Brett Kern. Punter Arryn Siposs is healthy and will handle punting duties for the Eagles, letting Kern be inactive.
