KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Bill Jones, who started the first five games at fullback for the Kansas City Chiefs and 14 of the 15 he played last season, has been released.
The Chiefs did not declare who will replace Jones, although Tuesday’s move apparently makes room on the roster for running back Kimble Anders, who sustained a knee injury and was placed on injured reserve Sept. 12. Anders returned to practice last week.
Jones, a 12th round pick in 1989, most recently was in the spotlight for legal difficulties revolving around a hit-and-run accident last year.
