Packers’ Aaron Jones’ MRI results on knee injury, revealed
The Green Bay Packers have been impressive so far this season. After shutting out the Seattle Seahawks, this franchise should have all of the confidence in the world. Unfortunately, Aaron Jones fell to injury during Sunday’s game and Green Bay feared the worst.
However, it’s not the end of the world for the Packers. According to Ian Rapoport, “Aaron Jones was found to have a mild MCL sprain after his MRI, which means he’s out 1-2 weeks.” Considering how bad the injury could have been, this is enlightening news for Green Bay.

The Packers have been dealing with injuries throughout the season, most of which coming on the defensive side of the ball. Losing Aaron Jones for a couple of weeks hurts, but this is relatively good news considering it could have been for much longer.
It’ll be interesting to see how the Packers play in the coming weeks. Although they’ll be without Aaron Jones for at least one game, they have AJ Dillon ready to take on an expanded role. Dillon looked phenomenal stepping in for Jones on Sunday and seems ready to take on the starting job.
Green Bay takes on the Minnesota Vikings in their next game. It should be a tough NFC North matchup with the top two teams of the division going head-to-head. The Packers are the better overall team right now, but Minnesota gained some confidence with their big win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
Look for the Packers to utilize the run game even without Aaron Jones. AJ Dillon should be able to carry the workload, allowing Green Bay to continue playing fluidly.
