Jones has 181 rushing attempts this season to go along with 52 receptions. He currently leads the team in both categories.
Ahman Green holds the team record for 200-50 seasons

Aaron Jones just missed 200-50 seasons in 2019 and 2020
Jones barely missed out on a pair of 200-50 seasons back in 2019 and 2020. In 2019, Jones had 236 rushing attempts but fell one reception short with 49 catches. In 2020, Jones again had over 200 carries (201 to be exact) but fell three receptions short of 50 catches with 47.
With a 200-50 season in 2022, Jones would become the 96th running back in NFL history to reach the 200-50 milestone.
