The Green Bay Packers could be without one of their most important offensive players yet again this season following an update from head coach Matt LaFleur Friday afternoon.
The Packers have had running back Aaron Jones on the injury report since he sustained a hamstring injury against the Chicago Bears in Week 1. Jones returned for the Packers Week 4 contest against the Detroit Lions but missed their Week 5 game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Jones was listed as questionable for the Packers Monday Night Football game against the Raiders after coming off the mini-bye from Week 4.
Could the Packers see a similar result again in Week 7, coming off the bye in Week 6?
The Green Bay Packers list RB1 as questionable
Jones was back to practice Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. However, he was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. According to Matt Schneidman with The Athletic, Jones is questionable to play the Broncos in Week 7.
Final Packers injury report before heading to Denver, per Matt LaFleur:
Doubtful: De’Vondre Campbell
Questionable: Aaron Jones, Jaire Alexander, Elgton Jenkins, Quay Walker, Darnell Savage Jr., Devonte Wyatt, Zayne Anderson, Yosh Nijman, Eric Stokes

That could mean the Packers don’t believe Jones is ready for full-time action. The Packers indicated they needed extra help in the backfield when they signed James Robinson this week after the New England Patriots poached Patrick Taylor.
