The Green Bay Packers (2-2) will be facing the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football next week against the Las Vegas Raiders (1-3). There have been injury concerns throughout the last four games for the Packers.
On Tuesday afternoon, Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones returned to practice ahead of their matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders next Monday night on the road.

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones did not see many carries in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions. He was very limited, with only five rushes in the 34-20 loss last Thursday night. The Packers did not have much success on the ground, with only 12 carries for 27 yards combined by Jones and AJ Dillon.
Packers Running Game Through Week 4
With Aaron Jones as the starting running back, they tend to lean on him for offensive success. The Green Bay Packers often like to use him to start out rather than a passing game to get downfield. If they do not use the run game, as of recently, the rushing attack has not been successful.
Being that the Lions’ defense was able to hold down the Packers’ rushing attack, nothing was established on offense until the second half late in the game.
Aaron Jones Should Be Available To Play In Week 5
Before the Green Bay Packers running back practiced on Tuesday, he stated that he is healthy and feels 100% ready to play in Week 5 on X:
“I feel like I’ll be able to go out there against Vegas on Monday night and be 100%,” Jones told reporters after the game.
Hopefully, the starting running back will be ready and able to go as he practices throughout the rest of this week leading up to Monday night.
It will be the former Packers wide receiver Davante Adams’s first game against them since being traded to the Las Vegas Raiders.
