The Packers already have 14 names on the injury report. They’re about to have a fifteenth.

Via Matt Schneidman of TheAthletic.com, running back Aaron Jones isn’t at practice on Friday. He’ll be listed on the injury report. His availability for Sunday’s game against the Texans isn’t known.

Jones started all 16 regular-season games (and two postseason games) in 2019. During his first two NFL seasons, Jones played in 12 games each year.

After rushing for 168 yards in Week Two against the Lions, Jones has rushed for only 69 yards against the Saints, 71 yards against the Falcons, and 15 against the Buccaneers.

He has 389 yards rushing through five games, along with 161 yards receiving. He has seven total touchdowns.

Jones is in the final year of his rookie contract. Packers G.M. Brian Gutekunst has described as “problematic” the challenge of managing the salary cap, especially since it could be as low as $175 million next year.

  1. Anybody left? Good Lord. Next Man Up is becoming next team up. The Bye did nothing to get this team on its feet.

  2. Hopefully nothing major. Reports say his calf tightned up yesterday. Aaron Jones is one of the best guys in the league.

  3. Translation, either pay me or this injury will linger.

    Silly Ariani, the headline says Aaron Jones not Dalvin Cook.

  4. I hope he plays but it might present an opportunity for their 2nd round pick AJ Dillon to get some work. The Packers aren’t deep at every position, but they are at RB.

  5. “Jones is in the final year of his rookie contract. Packers G.M. Brian Gutekunst has described as “problematic” the challenge of managing the salary cap, especially since it could be as low as $175 million next year.”

    As low as $175mil, NAH that’s going to be the ceiling after the hit they’re taking this year, I’m seeing it in the $150-160mil range. Even if it is at $175mil that’s $40mil under what the projected cap for next season was supposed to be($215mil), so it’s going to be interesting to see how some of those teams that went on a spending spree this summer get down to the cap number whatever it is. Teams like Philly, KC especially and also the Saints, Falcons & Rams are going to have to get rid of some top talent to get down to the cap number.
