After missing seven games last season due to injuries, Chiefs’ running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is approaching his third season the same way he always does.

“I wouldn’t just pinpoint it as year three. I always look at it the same way the first year I got drafted. Second year, dealt with some injuries and now it’s year three. It’s always a sense of urgency for me,” said Edwards-Helaire on Thursday after OTAs. “Being able to do the things I did starting at running back as a rookie playing in a Super Bowl and then really just battling injuries through last year. I feel like I bring that intensity and, as far as being a professional from the offseason and coming into this season, I do everything I need to.”
