  • Aaron Jones Ruled Out vs. Bears After Being Carted off with Knee Injury

Jones (knee) and fellow running back Ty Montgomery (ribs) suffered injuries during the team's win over the Chicago Bears.

McCarthy said Monday that Montgomery's injury was not as serious as Jones'. Montgomery may feel some pressure to avoid another absence, given that Jones is expected to miss multiple games.

Jones was injured early in the Packers' game Sunday against the Bears at Soldier Field. Thankfully, that presumption was premature, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The rookie out of UTEP was the Packers leading rusher this season, with 370 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 70 carries. He now moves into a feature role with the Green Bay backfield decimated by injuries. Jones rushed for 125 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on October 8, and outdid himself two weeks later in a loss to the New Orleans Saints by gaining 131 yards on the ground via 17 carries.

Packers rookie third-string running back Jamaal Williams took over from there with 67 yards on 20 carries.

The Packers will miss him in what has become an injury-riddled season, but the good news is that Montgomery is back.

The Packers, 5-4, play host to the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday.
