Green Bay Packers star Aaron Jones suffered an MCL sprain in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. He missed the team's Week 11 game, with A.J. Dillon filling in during his absence.

Fantasy managers who have Jones and/or Dillon are eager to know when the former will return from his current injury.

Aaron Jones Injury Update

Aaron Jones is still expected to be a game-time decision on Sunday, but there as reportedly been "some optimism" that he will play. Jones will go through pregame workouts before his status is officially determined.

Is Aaron Jones Going to Play This Week?

Aaron Jones' official status for Sunday's game against the Rams won't be decided until he goes through pregame warmups. Considering this game's 4:25 p.m. EST kickoff, that will not likely happen until after the day's 1 p.m. games have kicked off.

Jones' injury was first classified as "mild" and believed to be a 1-2 week recovery, and this development puts Jones right in the middle of that estimation.

When is Aaron Jones Coming Back?

Jones' return could be as soon as Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. The Packers are on bye in Week 13, however, so if he doesn't return today then he should be back in action in Week 14 against the Chicago Bears.
