NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - Former LSU star running back and now Kansas City rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire will miss the remainder of the regular season with hopes that he can return for the playoffs, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Edwards-Helaire suffered what is believed to be a high ankle sprain and strained hip. Edwards-Helaire was bent backwards while being tackled after a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter in the Chiefs 32-29 win over the New Orleans Saints.

The rookie out of LSU carried the ball 14 times for 79 yards and caught one pass for 4 yards in the win against the Saints. On the season Edwards-Helaire is the Chiefs leading rusher with 803 yards and four touchdowns on 181 carries.
