Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) to miss 3-6 weeks

14 November 2017

Now things have gotten worse for the team as their best running back, Aaron Jones, injured his MCL and is out 3-6 weeks, according to Adam Schefter.

Sources told NFL Network and ESPN that the running back will miss about a month of action.

The 22-year-old Jones, a fifth-round pick out of UTEP, is the Packers' leading rusher this season with 370 yards on 70 carries in eight games. To make matters even worse for the team, their second best running back, Ty Montgomery, also left the game this week due to a rib injury.

He appeared to suffer the injury while being tackled, when his right foot got stuck in the turft and bent awkwardly underneath his body.

The Packers will miss him in what has become an injury-riddled season, but the good news is that Montgomery is back. If both players are unable to go next week, Green Bay will likely turn full-time to rookie Jamaal Williams, who churned out 67 yards on 20 carries in relief of Jones and Montgomery.

But if they can win a few of those games, and Aaron Rodgers is eventually cleared to play, it could be enough. Jones rushed for 125 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on October 8, and outdid himself two weeks later in a loss to the New Orleans Saints by gaining 131 yards on the ground via 17 carries.
