Charles admits he’s the backup running back to Jones

The KC Star reports on the Chiefs run duo of Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones, and today it was Charles coming out saying that he knows he’s the backup in that tandem.

The Chiefs’ young and talented rusher Jamaal Charles had half as many carries as Thomas Jones, and Charles didn’t touch the ball until the team’s third possession. In Kansas City’s locker room, Charles acknowledged for the first time that he is the Chiefs’ backup running back. That Jones is the starter and that Charles has come to terms with his role. “I don’t have any complaints,” he said. “Hey, man, as long as we win games around here, it doesn’t matter to me.” Charles is saying the right things, and he appears to mean it, too. But the Chiefs can’t keep this up forever.
