After the Green Bay Packers rolled over the Seattle Seahawks thanks to a two-touchdown performance from AJ Dillon, the attention turned immediately to Aaron Jones' health.

Aaron Jones Injury News

Tests after the game confirmed that Jones had suffered the fourth sprained MCL of his NFL career. That leaves his status up in the air for not only Week 11's meeting with the Minnesota Vikings, but for the next few weeks as well.

Aaron Jones Injury History

Jones has previously suffered three sprained MCL injuries in his NFL career — two in 2017 and one in 2018. Two of those injuries came at the end of the seasons, so we didn't get to see how long a return would have taken. For the other, he was sidelined for two games.

AJ Dillon was brilliant playing in a primary role after Jones went down, and rushed for 66 yards and 2 TDs. Regardless, Jones is a massive hole for Green Bay to fill offensively. The fifth-year back averages 4.4 yards per carry for 541 rushing yards, and 37 receptions for 7 total TDs.

Green Bay sits in control of the NFC at 8-1 and enters a Week 11 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings as 2.5-point road favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
