Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is expected to miss the upcoming game in Detroit after injuring his knee in Sunday’s win over the Chargers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Jones has been diagnosed with an MCL sprain and is unlikely to play on Thanksgiving. He will be considered week-to-week moving forward.
In addition to Jones, the Packers also had Emanuel Wilson suffer a shoulder injury shortly after Jones was hurt. Both players were listed as non-participants in practice on Monday. As a result, the team signed Patrick Taylor to the active roster to join AJ Dillon, and veteran James Robinson was added to the practice squad.
This isn’t the first time Jones has missed games this season, as he previously sat out three games with a hamstring injury. In the seven games he has played, he has accumulated 66 carries for 245 yards and two touchdowns.
