Thomas Jones Can Move Up On The All-Time Rushing List

Kansas City Chiefs RB Thomas Jones is going to be in the headlines this weekend because of his affiliations with the New York Jets but he also has the chance to move on up in the record books.

As Jones mentioned in his conference call with the New York media, he's 11 yards shy of taking a couple of jumping two players on the all-time rushing yards list.

20. Ricky Watters: 10,643

21. Jamal Lewis: 10,607

22. Tiki Barber: 10,449

23. Eddie George: 10,441

24. Thomas Jones: 10,438

(Note: I had no idea Jamal Lewis was so high on this list.)

So probably sometime early in Sunday's game he'll pass George for the 23rd spot all time and eight more yards after that he'll pass Tiki, landing in the 22nd spot all-time.

No. 20 doesn't seem that far away -- 205 yards -- but Jones has just 325 yards rushing in the first 12 games. He would need an incredible increase in production over the final four games to hit it.
