Chiefs Chris Jones continues holdout 

Time is getting short for defensive tackle Chris Jones and the Kansas City Chiefs. The All-Pro’s holdout has now stretched well into training camp, and those $50,000 fines for each day he misses climbing for each game, beginning with their preseason opener Sunday in New Orleans.

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid had very little to say about missing All-Pro defensive tackle Chris Jones on Monday.

What he did say carried some weight.

Jones, who is entering the final year of his four-year, $80 million contract, skipped the entirety of the Chiefs’ offseason program and has so far held out all of training camp while trying to secure a new long-term deal. And with their first preseason game now less than a week away, Reid indicated that even superstars such as Jones are missing something by missing camp.
