Former Indiana football linebacker Cam Jones, Chiefs headed to Super Bowl LVIII


With the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Jan. 28, former Indiana football linebacker Cam Jones will be on the sidelines for his first Super Bowl. He suffered an injury in the Chiefs’ Wild Card victory over the Miami Dolphins, sidelining him for the remainder of the season.  

Mainly seeing the field as a part of the special teams unit, Jones played in all 17 regular season games and accumulated 17 total tackles. He racked up 10 tackles in the Chiefs’ Week 18 against the Los Angeles Chargers, helping clinch the No. 3 seed in the AFC. 

Jones played 47 games in his five seasons in Bloomington and was elected a captain for three seasons, joining Antwaan Randle El and Emmett King as the only three-time captains in program history. He finished his career in the cream and crimson with 208 total tackles alongside 13.5 tackles for loss. 

With Jones and the Chiefs making it to Super Bowl LVIII, former Hoosiers have now reached 13 of the last 15 Super Bowls. Linebacker Tegray Scales was the most recent Hoosier to be a Super Bowl champion, being on the Tampa Bay Buccanneers roster for its Super Bowl LV victory.
