Packers run again Aaron Jones left Sunday’s game against the Seahawks in the third round with a knee injury and did not return.
Jones was tackled by multiple Seahawks defenders in a six-yard dash late in the third half. He was on the ground and was seen hugging his right knee after the match. He was led to the field by two medical staff.
Jones was then taken to the side medical tent for examination. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Packers believe Jones has an MCL sprain. The team has not confirmed the report.
Prior to the injury, Jones had seven runs for 25 yards and caught four passes for 61 yards.
CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson commented that Jones was in tears as she stepped out of the medical tent and spoke to family members in the stands.

First, the Packers ruled that Jones could come back and then put him out of the game:
AJ Dillon has replaced Jones as the return lead Green Bay. He then dashed in for two touchdowns in Green Bay’s 17-0 win,
Jones is expected to conduct further testing this week to determine the severity of the injury and the timing of his return.
