Source: Chiefs Locker Room Scuffle Between Rookie First Round WR Baldwin, Thomas Jones?

Chance To Become Something Special

A locker-room clash between Chiefs running back Thomas Jones and first-round pick Jonathan Baldwin has left the rookie wideout uncertain for the remainder of the preseason with a wrist injury, a club source verified Friday to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“Jonathan Baldwin did not play tonight due to injury. That’s the extent about what I’m going to talk about,” Chiefs coach Todd Haley said after Friday night’s preseason loss to the Ravens, calling the incident “family business.”

Baldwin, a daunting 6-foot-4, 230-pound wide receiver, was drafted 26th overall last April from Pittsburgh.

Jones logged 245 hauls for 896 yards (3.7 avg), and six scores on the ground last season for the Tomahawks.
