Not having weapons hasn't stopped Aaron Rodgers and the Packers from winning but that doesn't mean they don't want them on the field. And Rodgers will get a big one back on Monday as James Jones returns.
Jones has missed the last two games with a knee injury but isn't on the inactives list posted by Green Bay on Monday.

The folks that are included on Green Bay's inactive list are wideout Chris Harper, cornerback James Nixon, linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, tight end Jermichael Finley and defensive ends Josh Boyd and C.J. Wilson.
In Jones place, Jordy Nelson stepped up big time, producing like a true WR1. And Jarrett Boykin -- proving that Ted Thompson can find wideouts from anywhere -- hopped into the lineup and produced from the get-go.
That doesn't mean the Packers can afford to play without Jones. Having the NFL's leading touchdown scorer from 2012 on the field is always something you want. Rodgers and the Green Bay offense just becomes more dangerous now.
