Packers RB A.J. Dillon missed his second straight practice on Thursday and told the media that he has a broken thumb. OC Adam Stenavich said that the team is still figuring out whether Dillon can play vs. the Bucs this weekend. "It makes it harder to catch the ball and things like that, but if you limit the things he does, it can be done," Stenavich said. We'll keep an eye on Dillon's status, as well as Aaron Jones (knee), who remained limited in Thursday's practice. The Packers also have RB Patrick Taylor on the active roster and RB Kenyan Drake on the practice squad.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, while RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) was sidelined. We're tentatively projecting both guys to play vs. the Bucs this weekend, but we'll keep you updated on their statuses over the next few days.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Giants. RB A.J. Dillon has totaled 32 carries sans Jones the past two weeks and should be busy in this one with the Packers 5.5-point favorites. The Giants are allowing 4.6 yards per carry to opposing RBs.

The Packers have elevated RB Kenyan Drake from the practice squad for tonight's game against the Giants. He joins AJ Dillon and Patrick Taylor on the roster for a game RB Aaron Jones is expected to miss. We're not expecting a lot of work for Drake in a backfield that has leaned heavily on Dillon when Jones is out.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is not expected to play vs. the Giants tonight, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Jones got in three limited practices this week, but the Packers are notoriously cautious bringing players back from injuries. We're tentatively expecting Jones to return for Week 15 but will track his status this week. His absence tonight leaves A.J. Dillon as Green Bay's lead back again. Dillon has handled 32 of 47 Packers carries (68%) over the past two weeks with Jones out. He's lost passing-down snaps to RB Patrick Taylor, but that's less of a concern tonight with the Packers six-point favorites.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Giants. The late kickoff puts fantasy owners hoping to use Jones or RB A.J. Dillon in a tough spot. We'll look for an update on Jones' status on Sunday morning. For now, we're projecting Jones IN for Week 14.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) put in a limited practice on Thursday. That seemingly gives him a shot to return for Monday night's game vs. the Giants. We'll track Jones' status over the next few days.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is out for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. He remained sidelined in practice all week. RB A.J. Dillon will again operate as Green Bay's primary ball carrier this weekend, but he'll also likely cede most passing-down work to RB Patrick Taylor. That's a concern with the Packers 6-point underdogs.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (groin) was held out of Wednesday's practice. He played through the groin issue on Thanksgiving and should be fine for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. But we'll track his status over the next few days.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Lions. He was limited in practice this week and listed as questionable, but we’ve heard nothing to suggest that the groin will be an issue today. Dillon will operate as Green Bay’s lead ball-carrier with RB Aaron Jones out. But he lost passing-down work to RB Patrick Taylor in the three games Jones missed earlier this season, totaling just two targets. Dillon lands in RB3 territory in the Week 12 Rankings.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is out for Thursday's game vs. the Lions. RB A.J. Dillon (groin) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. Dillon should be ready to serve as Green Bay's lead ball carrier on Thanksgiving, but you'll need to check back around 11 am ET tomorrow to make sure he's active.

Packers RB Aaron Jones is considered "week-to-week" with an MCL sprain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefters adds that Jones is "unlikely" to play vs. the Lions on Thanksgiving. We'd consider him no better than 50/50 to be ready for Week 13. RB A.J. Dillon will take over as Green Bay's lead ball-carrier in Jones' absence. But Dillon lost passing-down work to RB Patrick Taylor when Jones was sidelined earlier this season.

Packers RB AJ Dillon got pressed into the lead-back role in Sunday's win over the Chargers. And he disappointed once again. Dillon managed just 29 yards on 14 carries (2.1 per rush). That marked his sixth game of 10 with less than 4.0 yards per carry and fourth at less than 2.5. Dillon previously posted lackluster production across a four-game stretch in which Jones missed three games and played a limited role in the other. We'll see about how long Jones is expected to remain out this time. But don't expect big things from Dillon during that time.

Packers RB Aaron Jones suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. He was in obvious pain on the field and needed help getting out. We'll update his status when we know more, but don't expect Jones to return today. That'll leave A.J. Dillon as Green Bay's lead back.

Update: Jones has been ruled out.

After trailing teammate AJ Dillon in Week 7 usage while working back from his hamstring injury, Packers RB Aaron Jones climbed to basically even in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. His 7 carries led the team, producing 29 yards (4.1 per rush). Jones also tied Dillon at 5 targets. He caught four for 17 yards. Dillon caught all five of his to lead the team in receptions and posted 41 yards. Given the lackluster performance of Dillon overall, Jones should see further increases in his work. Non-scary matchups with the Rams, Steelers, and Chargers await over the next three weeks.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) entered Sunday with questions about his workload. He remained limited in practice this week, so seeing him eased into action against Denver wasn't a surprise. The veteran back saw 8 of 25 team RB carries; 5 of 9 RB targets. AJ Dillon led the way with 15 carries and 2 catches for a season-high 95 total yards. On the bright side: Jones avoided a hamstring setback. He should see his workload rise next week vs. the Vikings, but we'll look for clues ahead of that matchup.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. “He looked pretty good (but) he was limited, so we’ll see how he’s feeling," HC Matt LaFleur said after Friday's practice. It's concerning that Jones is still dealing with hamstring trouble coming off the bye. We'll look for further updates on his status. We won't get Green Bay's inactives until a little before 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon managed to barrel his way to 76 rushing yards with a TD in Week 5’s loss vs. the Raiders. It wasn’t a particularly efficient performance, as it took 20 carries for Dillon to reach these totals, but fantasy managers can’t be too upset with him. We’re still talking double-digit fantasy points here. Still, this Packers’ rushing attack hasn’t been particularly good since RB Aaron Jones went down with a hamstring injury in Week 2. Hopefully, Jones will make it back in time for a primo matchup against the lowly Broncos defense in Week 6.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is officially inactive for tonight's game against the Raiders. He'll get a Week 6 bye to rest up that hamstring. RBs A.J. Dillon, Patrick Taylor, and Emanuel Wilson are active for Green Bay tonight. See our projections for the Packers backfield.
