Aaron Jones Injury Updates

Packers RB Jamaal Williams was knocked out of Monday night's game in Minnesota with a shoulder injury. We'll see if he's able to play in this weekend's finale against the Lions. If not, RB Aaron Jones will be locked into a workhorse role.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He'll return for Monday night's game against the Lions. Williams had basically worked himself into an even timeshare with Aaron Jones before the concussion. Then Jones busted out for 182 yards and 4 TDs with Williams out last week. We're guessing that earns Jones lead duties on Monday night -- but Williams' return still puts a dent in his Week 6 outlook.

Packers RB Aaron Jones has been sidelined for almost a week now with what was originally described as hamstring "tightness." We haven't heard anything on the issue since. Jones missed a couple weeks of camp with a hammy issue last summer and has suffered 3 MCL injuries — 2 to the right knee, 1 to the left — over the past 2 seasons. Durability is a fair concern. We'll see when Jones is able to get back on the field.

The Packers believe RB Aaron Jones sprained his right MCL in the loss to the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury is "not considered serious," Rapoport adds. Jones suffered the same injury to the same knee last year and missed 2 games. It's possible we don't see him again this season -- especially with the Packers eliminated from playoff contention. That'd leave Jamaal Williams as the lead back.

Packers RB Aaron Jones has missed over a week of training camp with a hamstring injury. We haven't heard a timetable for his return from the Packers or the media. It's been a rough month for Jones, who was slapped with a 2-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy in early July. He's still capable of carving out a role when he returns in Week 3 -- but he obviously needs to get over this hammy issue first. Jones is overvalued at his current 8th-round ADP.

Packers RB Aaron Jones was knocked out in the 1st half of Saturday's game against the Vikings with a knee injury. It's unclear if this is related to the MCL injury he suffered in mid-November. We'll look for an update.

11:12am EST 12/3/17

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is active for today's game against the Bucs. He ended up missing just 2 games with that MCL injury. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that RB Jamaal Williams will get “most of the work,” but that could change based on how both RBs are performing. Williams remains the better fantasy bet but is more of a risk/reward RB2 now. Jones is just a flier in his 1st game back.

Packers RB Aaron Jones was charged with speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system on October 1, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Jones has pleaded not guilty but reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana that morning when he was pulled over. No pot was found in the car. Jones' next court hearing isn't until February, so this shouldn't impact his availability the rest of this season. He, of course, is expected to miss at least a couple more games with his knee injury. Jones could certainly be facing a suspension come 2018, though. He was also arrested for DWI while at UTEP back in 2016.

Packers RB Aaron Jones is expected to miss 3-6 weeks with his MCL injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The short end of that timetable would have him back for Week 14. The long end would knock him out through Week 16, the end of most fantasy seasons. Jones is droppable in shallower leagues. We're still waiting for an update on RB Ty Montgomery and his rib injury. If he misses time, Jamaal Williams will be left as Green Bay's lead back.

Packers RB Aaron Jones suffered a knee injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game in Chicago and was carted back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we learn more. Jones' absence will turn Ty Montgomery back into an every-down back.

Update: Jones has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
