Haley refuses to address Baldwin, Jones fight

BALTIMORE — Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley did not deny that there was a fight this week between first-round draft pick Jonathan Baldwin and veteran RB Thomas Jones, but did not directly address the issue, either, in his remarks following a preseason loss at Baltimore.

Haley would not discuss the nature of the injury to the rookie receiver despite several direct questions about the incident, which sources said resulted in Baldwin suffering a hand/wrist injury that could keep him out of the remainder of the preseason.

“Jonathan Baldwin did not play tonight due to injury,” Haley said. “As I say in here a bunch, that’s the extent of what I’m going to talk about it …

“As with many things with our team that I come back to, we fall into injuries being in the family business category.”

Haley also declined to divulge any timetable for Baldwin’s return.

“I’m gonna leave it at talking about the guys who were out there tonight,” Haley said.

Jones politely declined to address the altercation with Baldwin, although he did not deny an incident took place.

“If its not a football question, I’m really not interested in answering it,” Jones said.
