The Green Bay Packers showed interest in signing two All-ACC running backs Tuesday following a disappointing loss to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
The Packers are dealing with multiple injuries to skilled offensive players. Starting running back Aaron Jones was inactive against the Giants due to a knee injury. In the loss, AJ Dillon ran 15 times for 53 yards (3.5 yards per rush).
Dillon hasn’t been able to put up numbers similar to Jones since he’s been the Packers’ lead back. The Packers have tried to get the ball into other players in the backfield to get the running game going this season.
