Per Kent Babb:
Also according to Babb, veteran RB Thomas Jones has taken grief from coaches during several practices for mental mistakes. Position coach Maurice Carthon gave Jones an earful Monday morning, and it led to Kestahn Moore taking snaps with the first-team offense.
So, is this a serious problem or just Haley getting mental? Babb continues:
According to Kansas City Star staffer Kent Babb, Thomas Jones is taking most of the first-team snaps at running back, relegating Jamaal Charles to the backup unit. Babb went on to suggest Jones might really be ahead of Charles at this stage, but it's also possible that HC Todd Haley is using psychology to motivate Charles and remind him that last year's performance wasn't enough to deem him the starter.
ESPN's Bill Williamson thinks Charles is definitely the guy:
Bill Williamson advised readers not to make too much of Charles working behind Jones. Williamson explained: "It's no big deal. ... Charles will be the primary back in Kansas City if he doesn't suddenly fall off the face of the earth. This is a blossoming star. The Chiefs will use him." Considering Jones is on the team now and Charles is coming off an offseason shoulder injury, this isn't the worst idea ever. ... Worth noting: Jones, 31, is eight years older than Charles, but Babb reports the veteran looked as strong and quick as ever during 11-on-11 drills Saturday.
Jones #1? Keep an eye on it.
