Chiefs training camp notebook: Just like that, Darwin Thompson has become a player to watch

A day after Damien Williams addressed the situation, the Kansas City Chiefs’ on-again, off-again relationship with a running back-by-committee continued at training camp in St. Joseph when running backs coach Deland McCullough took the podium.

“I look at it as we have a committee of guys who can play,” McCullough said on Tuesday. “But when we go out there, Damien will be the first guy that goes out there. Damien is going to go out there, he’s the lead guy, so he’s going to go out there and play. He will be supplemented by the other guys of course, but Damien is the starter.
