Packers-Giants Final Injury Report: Aaron Jones Among 4 Questionable

Aaron Jones, the running back for the Packers, took part in each of the three practices this week. When the Giants visit on Monday night, will he be let loose?

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin: Aaron Jones, the running back for the Green Bay Packers, was limited in his activity on Saturday for the third day in a row. It appears that Jones may be ready to make a comeback to the starting lineup for Monday night’s game against the New York Giants.

On coach Matt LaFleur’s final injury report of the week, Jones, safety Darnell Savage, cornerback Eric Stokes, and cornerback Jaire Alexander were all listed as questionable. Linebacker Quay Walker is questionable, and receiver Christian Watson is out.

Assuming Saturday’s practice went off without a hitch, it will be up to Jones, the coaches and training staff to decide whether he will play on Monday or wait a week and face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next Sunday at Lambeau Field.

“I would say just being able to put that foot in the ground and then get up to full speed,” Jones said after Friday’s practice of when he’d know he’d be ready for game action. “The only thing you don’t know is the hit – when you’re taking a hit, you don’t know until that happens. But I feel like it’s more so when you’re running around, you have your full range of motion, you’re able to cut, put your foot in the ground the way you want to.”

Jones’s sprained MCL prevented him from playing in the last two games. The last significant test for Jones’ potential return came on Saturday during practice, as he missed games against the Chiefs and Lions due to a knee injury sustained during the team’s victory over the Chargers.

Despite the fact that the Packers prevailed in those three games, his return would help the team as a leader, receiver, and runner.

Adam Stenavich, the offensive coordinator, praised “his dynamic playmaking ability of obviously running the ball but in the pass game, as well.” However, we’re fortunate to have AJ (Dillon). Being our workhorse for the last half of the season, he’s done a pretty good job. Although he may not be as showy as Aaron Jones, you can always rely on him to

As is typical for the final practice of the week, reporters only got to see the pre-practice stretch inside the Don Hutson Center. Walker (shoulder) and Watson (hamstring) were the only players who did not go outside for the start of practice.

Dealing with a hamstring injury sustained late in the victory over the Chiefs, Watson didn’t practice this week. The question isn’t so much whether he’ll play against the Giants as it is how many games he’ll miss with his latest hamstring issue.
