Packers RB Aaron Jones reportedly has MCL sprain will undergo MRI Monday

The Green Bay Packers couldn't avoid injury to a key contributor yet again during their 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears.

McCarthy said Monday that Montgomery's injury was not as serious as Jones'.

The rookie running back injured his knee in the first of Sunday's game and didn't return.

Fantasy Impact Aaron Jones was operating as the primary Green Bay running back before leaving the game with a knee injury. Thankfully, that presumption was premature, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Among the rushes were three Wildcat plays with receiver Randall Cobb taking the direct snap and rushing for minus-1, 6 and 3 yards on those plays. Starting tight end Martellus Bennett then had a mystery injury issue that led the Packers to cut him.

That leaves two other rookies, Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays, as the only healthy halfbacks on the roster. He now moves into a feature role with the Green Bay backfield decimated by injuries.

Jones' timetable for return makes it possible Jones could miss most of the season. The Packers might just use fullback Aaron Ripkowski on passing downs if Montgomery can't make it back for Sunday's game against Baltimore.
