Chiefs | Experience is why Thomas Jones is starting

Kansas City Chiefs RB Thomas Jones is listed as the starter over RB Jamaal Charles because Jones has proven himself over a full season, according to head coach Todd Haley, reports The Kansas City Star's Adam Teicher. "What he did last year … it was an eight-game window or an eight-game sample that we saw," Haley said of Charles. "What we're pushing Jamaal to do is show that he can do that throughout a 16-game and hopefully-plus schedule. That's something that Thomas has proven through time." Charles has rushed nine times for 63 yards in two preseason games while Jones has 10 rushes for just 31 yards.
