Aaron Jones won't play vs Giants

The veteran running back suffered a sprained MCL on November 19th.

Packers running back Aaron Jones was a limited participant on all three days of practice this past week, leading to speculation that Jones could possibly return to the lineup for Monday night's game against the Giants. 

Per NFL Network, Jones will be on the shelf at least another week. 

Jones suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee back on November 19th in the win over the Chargers. 

As Tom indicates, expect to see more of an AJ Dillon-led rushing attack during tonight's contest at MetLife Stadium.

Poor AJ. I know he would love to play. Not been his season.

Let AJD rock roll like and old Bob Dillon song and then we'll turn the page.

Yes he would love to play but I am not too concerned based on how the rest of the gang has played the last few games.

It's been a great year as far as finding out who can play from our young guys. The experience they're gaining will be huge moving forward. I know Dillon has caught his fair share of crap, but I believe he needs to be resigned at a reasonable #2 RB rate, of course .

Yup, #28 is a GREAT complementary RB, but not a #1. Unfortunately #27 is not different enough to offer anything complementary, but just a #2 in relief for our #2. Or close to a clone in pass pro.

Hopefully #31 Wilson comes back 100% soon. I'd like to see Gutey get Goodson back, too.

With Tucker Kraft showing signs of possibly ending the 3rd round curse, I'd take a flyer on RB with one of our two picks.

Love AJ and hope he heals up to finish this season strong. After taking a pay cut and all he's done for the team he deserves to take it slow. After this year, who knows, but we could use him for a playoff push!

In a strange way it could help to force this offense to win against bottom feeders and allow #33 to recuperate. If he's 100% in playoffs and so is #9? WOW!

Add all our starters on D, and that would be the first time we had our best players ... (except Bakh and #84 Tyler Davis, who we have no idea how he'd be contributing if healthy)

It'll be interesting to see how Musgrave comes back. How do you lacerate a kidney? Sounds like ribs must've gotten into places they shouldn't?

Not sure how explosive we need to be against the Giants anyway - I think ball control would be the objective = Dillon battering away and short passes moving the chains.

I'd LOVE to see a game won like that but remember, #28 is not 100%. #27 should get a substantial workload if that were the strategy, but I doubt MLF tries it.

Reps to Reed Wicks and Kraft are also valuable! Hopefully they get the bulk of the targets, and JL really strengthens the connection with them.
