Isiah Pacheco Officially Out for Week 14 vs Bills with Shoulder Injury



Pacheco didn’t practice at all this week and Andy Reid did little to help quell the concern for the dynamic running back’s rest-of-season prospects moving forward. ‘We’ll see’ was the response he gave to a question about whether or not Pacheco could land on IR with the shoulder injury that’s holding him out of the matchup this week against the Bills, so his future moving forward is officially in question. A trip to IR would mean certain doom for his fantasy managers – a four-week absence would slate Pacheco to return, at the earliest, in Week 18 - one week after the end of the fantasy football season. In relief of Pacheco, the Chiefs are expected to platoon RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon to pick up the slack left by Pacheco in the backfield. Despite Andy Reid saying that CEH would be the No. 1 guy in Kansas City’s backfield, McKinnon will be the player to add given that he will almost assuredly be running many more routes than CEH.
