Aaron Jones faces a crucial training camp with the Packers this summer. Given a chance start several games last year, Jones had 10-plus Fantasy points in three of his first four games. Then he got displaced by Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams and averaged 3.8 touches per game before hurting his knee, ending his season a little early. If Jones can prove he can handle working three downs during Packers camp then he could earn some work and, perhaps, eventually weave his way into the starting lineup. Not a bad gig when Aaron Rodgers is your quarterback. A lot of Fantasy owners will target Jones after getting Williams several rounds earlier, but so long as his headlines in training camp are positive and he avoids a suspension based on a 2017 arrest, Jones does have late-round sleeper appeal to everyone.
Jones (hamstring, suspension) won't play in Thursday's game against Pittsburgh, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Jones warmed up before Thursday's game but he won't see the field at all as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Look for Jamal Williams and Ty Montgomery to handle the first and second-team reps with Jones out.
Jones (hamstring, suspension) is suited up for Thursday's preseason contest against the Steelers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jones didn't turn in a full practice in advance of this game due to a hamstring injury that his lingered from training camp into the preseason slate. As a result, he may merely go through pre-game warmups before residing on the sideline thereafter with the rest of the scratched players. If he doesn't suit up, the backfield will again be the domain of Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery, Joel Bouagnon and Akeem Judd.
Jones (hamstring) participated in practice Sunday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Absent from practice for more than two weeks due to a hamstring injury, Jones appears ready to reenter the battle for backfield touches. While he'll miss the first two games of the season due to a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, he'll be a part of a committee, at least, with Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery once Week 3 of the regular season rolls around.
Jones (hamstring, suspension) isn't practicing Friday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jones expected to return by Thursday but will instead miss a full week of practice. Already facing a two-game suspension to begin the season, Jones needs to get on the practice field to make his case for a role in the Green Bay backfield upon returning in Week 3. His absence has allowed Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery to dominate first-team reps in training camp, though Jones still has time to make some noise during the preseason.
Jones (hamstring, suspension) expects to be back at practice by Thursday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports. Jones confirmed his injury isn't serious, even saying he would be able to play in a game if the Packers had one Monday. He still has plenty of time to make his case for a role in what figures to be a committee backfield, after watching Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery handle most of the first-team work early in camp. Jones should be be busy during the preseason, but he'll start the regular season with a two-game suspension stemming from a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
