Isiah Pacheco missed each of the Chiefs' last two games following a clean-up surgery on a shoulder contusion he suffered, though it looks like he'll return for Kansas City in Week 16.

The Chiefs face the Raiders with an opportunity to clinch the AFC West and Andy Reid told media on Monday that Pacheco will return.

Chiefs Injury News: Isiah Pacheco to Return in Week 16

Pacheco's return to game action will provide a massive boost to the Chiefs' offense, as he's been the team's most dependable offensive player this side of Rashee Rice.

On the season, Pacheco has 176 rushes for 779 yards and 6 TDs while adding 33 catches for 208 yards and another score through the air.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon both performed well over the last two weeks, though Pacheco is obviously the team's most talented option at running back.

There was understandable concern that Pacheco would have a lingering injury through the rest of the year, but Reid's confidence that Pacheco will play should ease those concerns.
