Kansas City might not have such a huge running back advantage on Monday Night Football.

It looks like Eddie Lacy (ankle sprain) could heal in time for his showdown with Jamaal Charles in primetime, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Lacy rushed for 85 yards and a score the previous week and looked like his dominant self. Then, he notched only nine yards on three carries before an early exit in Week 2.
