Jones, Gary may have dodged major injuries
Reports suggest mild MCL sprain for RB; Gary may attempt to play Sunday
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones could be out one-to-two weeks with a knee injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Schefter reports Jones has a mild MCL sprain. Jones had an MRI Monday.
Jones left the Packers-Seahawks game in the third quarter. He injured his right knee after a six-yard carry.
Outside linebacker Rashan Gary suffered a hyperextened right elbow in Sunday’s win over Seattle; but he too may have avoided a serious injury. Several reports Monday say the 3rd year pro may even try to play this Sunday in Minnesota, if he can perform with a brace.
Before suffering the injury in the 4th quarter, Gary had a sack of Russell Wilson to give him a career-high 5.5 sacks on the season. He has been the team’s most consistent pass rusher all season in the absence of Za’Darius Smith, who played in just one game before back surgery placed him to injured reserve.
The Packers defeated the Seahawks 17-0. At 8-2, they lead the NFC North by 3.5 games over the 4-5 Vikings. The Packers visit Minnesota Sunday with the kickoff set for noon..
