Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones got bent awkwardly when getting tackled by the Los Angeles Chargers, and he remained down on the field clutching his knee. Two trainers eventually helped him off the field, and they took him right into the medical tent.
Jones had struggled to get into a rhythm on Sunday. Before the injury, he had four carries for 14 yards and added three yards on one reception. While he is sidelined, backup running back AJ Dillon will get the bulk of the work as the Packers look to put up some points before heading into halftime.
Jones has missed four games already this season. His early absence stemmed from a hamstring injury that he wasn’t able to shake-off.
