Packers running back Aaron Jones left Sunday’s game against the Bears on his fourth carry of the afternoon with a knee injury. It appears that tote could be his last of the season, as the running back expects to be sidelined a while, PackersNews.com writes.
Though an official word has not been released, the running back said it was “similar” to the torn MCL he suffered last season, which cost him two games. With just two games remaining in the season and the Packers eliminated from playoff contention, it would make sense that the emerging back is done for the season. He would not rule out his return, however.
“I’m hoping that I will be able to play next week,” Jones said. “I’m a competitor and I want to play, and it killed me not to be able to play.”
