Aaron Jones misses first practice of the week

Christian Watson and Quay Walker worked off to the side during Wednesday's practice. 

Aaron Jones had a monster day against the Bears last Sunday, recording 127 yards and two touchdowns on 11 touches (including 41 rushing yards on nine carries) prior to coming up hurt at the end of his route while scoring his second touchdown. 

When the Packers took the practice field for the first time since Sunday's game, Jones was not in attendance. 

Coach Matt LaFleur said after practice that they'd give Jones the rest of the week and see how his hamstring feels closer to game time. 

Meanwhile, Christian Watson continued to work off to the side of practice while rehabbing his hamstring injury. This is total guess work, but I'd say that's not a great sign for his potential availability in Atlanta on Sunday. We'll see if he makes a significant jump in participation during Thursday's practice. 

Quay Walker remains in concussion protocol, but did work off to the side with trainers throughout the afternoon.

Hopefully it's more like the "vet rest" they give DB.

I'd expect it means he's less than 100% and no need to risk it. I just hope he's in close contact with the coaches, on everything.

My prediction - Watson misses first 3 games, Jones misses one, and Quay plays Sunday. I'm generally wrong.

I'd like to see them give Wilson some carries this week. Taylor too.

I hope with all these nagging injuries, the stop individuals stops, jumps flips & all that crap. The game is tough enough without self inflicted stupid stuff. GPG!!!
