Los Angeles Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa and Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones were each carted to their respective locker rooms after getting hurt on separate first-half plays Sunday at Lambeau Field.
Bosa left with a foot injury, while Jones hurt his knee in the Packers’ 23-20 victory.
Jones suffered a knee injury during a 2-yard run late in the second quarter.
Jones said initial reports regarding his anterior cruciate ligament were positive, though he was awaiting an MRI.
“I was feeling like, ‘Man, I can’t catch a break,’ " Jones said. “But caught a break. Hopefully, it’s not anything serious and I’m back here pretty soon.”
“I don’t think it’s long term,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said of Jones’ injury. “Certainly I think it really looked bad. I was really concerned just seeing it live. I didn’t see a replay or anything, but seeing it live, it did not look good. But he’s in good spirits in there, and so hopefully it’s just a short-term deal.”
