Packers place Aaron Jones on injured reserve

The Green Bay Packers will be without one of their young stars for the final two games of the regular season.

The team announced Monday afternoon that running back Aaron Jones had been placed on injured reserve after being knocked out of the game against Chicago with a knee injury.


After a two-game suspension at the start of the season, Jones turned into one of the bigger weapons on the offense. He finished with 934 total yards (728 rushing) and scored nine touchdowns. His knee injury has been reported as a sprained MCL, which won’t require surgery and he should be good to go when the offseason program opens.

Green Bay was eliminated from playoff contention last Sunday with its loss to Chicago.
