Aaron Jones injury: Packers RB Week 11 vs Chargers
Aaron Jones' 2023 NFL season with Green Bay Packers has been frustrating due to injuries, with concerns about his availability.
Aaron Jones has had a tough 2023 NFL season with the Green Bay Packers due to injuries. A lingering hamstring injury caused him to miss three games and be limited in three others. Although he recently returned to his usual workload, a new injury in Week 11 may complicate his availability moving forward.
During the game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Jones suffered a serious knee injury after an awkward tackle during a rushing play. He had to be carted off the field and into the locker room, which is never a good sign for any injury situation. The Packers officially announced that he would be unable to return to the game.
The team will likely take an MRI on Aaron Jones' knee to determine the exact details of the injury and his availability for the remainder of the season. AJ Dillon replaced Jones in the game and will likely continue to serve as the starting running back if Jones is forced to miss more games.
In the game against the Chargers, Dillon recorded 14 carries for just 29 yards. Third-string running back Emanuel Wilson also suffered an injury, leaving Dillon as the only healthy running back on the roster. Depending on the severity of the injuries, the Packers may need to explore the free agent market for solutions.
