Packers running back Aaron Jones didn’t finish Sunday’s game on the field.

Jones left with an ankle injury during the 15-9 loss to the Lions and he was in a walking boot when he spoke to reporters after the game.

“A little sore,” Jones said of his condition, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “I was fine. They sent me for X-rays. X-rays were fine, but they decided to hold me [out]. It was frustrating because I felt like I could have went, but they were being smart. I definitely respect them, because after I stopped moving around and I sat still for a while, it got kind of sore. I respect them.”

Jones won’t be the only player the Packers medical staff is monitoring this week. Wide receiver Romeo Doubs hurt his ankle and was on crutches, cornerback Eric Stokes had his right foot in a boot, and linebacker Rashan Gary was using crutches after hurting his knee. Wide receiver Christian Watson and linebacker Krys Barnes wer evaluated for concussions and left tackle David Bakhtiari had more trouble with his knee, so there’s plenty to sort out ahead of next Sunday’s game against Dallas.

  1. Not an ideal situation for Love, but I think you throw him into the fire and see what you got.

  2. Bak is done and Watson sneezes and gets a concussion – that wasnt even a blow to the head – he may be done. Watkins cant even run the correct route and is limping. Stokes being out allowed the backups to play and they are better except Nixon taking a stupid holding penalties. I just dont see why players are not put on the bench for taking stupid away from the play penalties. If you cant run with a guy you shouldnt be on the team – we have had so many dumb defensive penalties. And when you get bad refs like today – you expect them not to throw the flags

  3. Might as well put him on IR.

    LaFleur refuses to use him, even though he’s his only chain mover.

  4. Honestly, they probably aren’t worth talking about anymore. Packers will pick 4-5 in the draft.

  5. If I were Jones I’d consider maybe thinking this injury might “linger.” He can save himself for next year…..somewhere else.

  6. The way the injuries have piled up–and all in critical positions–is kind of stunning.

    It would remind me of the 49ers’ lost season in 2020, except that the Packers weren’t good to begin with.

  7. Savage must be injured.

    He’s two or three steps behind every receiver that gets into the deep secondary.

  8. I don’t get why this guy isn’t a bigger part of their game plan. He’s a threat every time he touches the ball. I guess the politics of a legendary QB holding his team hostage has something to do with it. Hard to see this team turning it around with the current structure and design.
