Nothing went right for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The team not only lost 15-9 to the lowly Detroit Lions, but several key contributors were injured, including star running back Aaron Jones.

He discussed the nature of his injury after the game.

Jones told reporters X-rays on his ankle were "fine." He said he "felt like" he could have reentered the game, but "they decided to hold me."

This update is a big sigh of relief for Packers fans. Jones' ankle injury doesn't sound significant at all, and the reason for him sitting out the remainder of the game appears to be solely due to extreme caution. Jones even admitted he got "kind of sore" after leaving in the third quarter, so it was wise of Green Bay to give his body a rest.

Adding to the good news is the fact Jones is expected to be able to practice this week, meaning he might not miss any additional time due to the injury.

The Packers will certainly hope to have Jones at full strength if they're to break their five-game losing streak in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds peg Green Bay as a 5-point home underdog ahead of that matchup.
