Packers RB Aaron Jones’ official injury status for Week 12 vs. Rams, revealed
The Packers released their latest injury report for this weekend’s matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. The official injury report listed star running back Aaron Jones as questionable to play on Sunday. Receiver Allen Lazard and linebacker Rashan Gary are also listed as questionable.
Receiver Malik Taylor (abdomen) and tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) have been ruled out, and cornerback Kevin King is doubtful (hip/knee).
Jones sustained a knee injury in the Packers Week 10 win against the Seattle Seahawks. This ended up being a mild MCL sprain, putting him out of commission for 1-2 weeks. His first week out was Week 11. The Minnesota Vikings beat the Packers, who could’ve benefitted from Jones’ ability to score in both the air and ground games.
He has been a large part of the Packers success on the offensive side of the football this season. In ten games, Jones has rushed for 541 yards and three touchdowns. He also has 298 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns.
If Jones is out this week, it will be his second week sitting out due to the sprain, and Green Bay will attempt to secure a win against the Rams without his offensive threat.
Also listed on the report was quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has been dealing with a toe injury since his COVID-19 quarantine. Although he didn’t practice this week, he is expected to be the Packers starting quarterback in Green Bay on Sunday afternoon.
