There’s good news out of Green Bay for running back Aaron Jones.
The running back has recovered the lost necklace that had a pendant filled with his father’s ashes. One of the Packers’ trainers found it well after the game had ended.
“[He] found it, so we’re perfect,” Jones told 97.3 The Game, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “Thank you to him. He was out there until 1:45 [a.m. CT]. It shows how much they care about us.”
Jones had a memorable night for his first game at Lambeau Field following his father’s death due to complications from COVID-19 in April. He accounted for 115 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns — three receiving, one rushing — in Green Bay’s 35-17 victory.
Jones had said following the game on Monday night that he believed the necklace had come off during his second touchdown. Now, he has it back after a fitting tribute to his father.
