Chiefs Running Back Has ''Legitimate Chance'' To Play This Week

He'll get his chance now that Clyde Edwards-Helaire is headed to the injured reserve.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that running back Ronald Jones has a ''legitimate chance' to suit up in Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Jones has been a healthy scratch the entire season, and even went as far as to request a trade from the team on his Twitter page. 

However, now with Edwards-Helaire now on the injured reserve, Jones could finally get his chance to get into a game for the Chiefs.

Jones will likely serve in a depth role behind Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.

The twenty-five-year-old spent the first four seasons of his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, recording 2,174 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns over 55 games. He was the Bucs' second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
