Aaron Jones may not have seen much of the field on Sunday, but he did just enough to join the ranks of some Green Bay Packers legends. Unfortunately, Jones was limited due to an injury he suffered during the game. He ran the ball nine times and gained just 26 yards. Those 26 yards, though, were enough to give him over 5,000 for his career. Jones is now just the fourth Packers running back to achieve that milestone.
Aaron Jones has now joined the illustrious 5,000 rushing yard club.
He joins Jim Taylor, John Brockington & Ahman Green as the only players in the history of the Green Bay Packers to hit this milestone.
