Packers RB to miss 3-6 weks with MCL sprain, report says


Aaron Jones isn't lost for the year, but the Green Bay Packers rookie running back could miss a good chunk of the closing stretch because of the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's win at Chicago. He was carted back to the locker room and eventually ruled out with a knee injury.

"Packers RB Aaron Jones will have an MRI tomorrow, but source said the initial diagnosis is a sprained MCL", wrote Rapoport on Sunday. To make matters even worse for the team, their second best running back, Ty Montgomery, also left the game this week due to a rib injury. That followed a massively productive senior season that saw him rack up 1,773 rushing yards, 28 catches for 233 more yards and 20 total TDs.

Jones had three carries for 12 yards before leaving the action.

Mazzulli said: "McGregor took it upon himself to jump into the cage". He was seen screaming at Goddard before finally exiting the ring.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy believes Montgomery (ribs) has a shot to play in Sunday's game against the Ravens, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Jones' timetable for return makes it possible Jones could miss most of the season. Missing all six weeks would leave him available for Week 17 against the Detroit Lions.

Green Bay selected Jones out of UTEP in the fifth round of the 2017 National Football League draft.
