The Kansas City Chiefs have a key position group that will look a little different than what we have been used to seeing, for quite some time.

With the latest news coming from the Chiefs, former first-round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be placed on the injured reserved list and will be out for some time.

When getting put on IR, players are required to be on the list and miss at least four games.

That means the Chiefs’ dynamic and deep running back group will look a bit different for some time.

Now, it will likely feature just two guys. Pacheco will likely be featured in the first, and second down situations, and maybe third and short, while Jerick McKinnon, the better pass catcher and pass protection guy, will be featured on third and fourth downs.

Edwards-Helaire suffered a high ankle sprain.
