The good news, however, is that Aaron Jones' knee injury is less serious than many initially feared.

Against the Chicago Bears last week, Green Bay lost Jones with an MCL injury. Green Bay does not have a running back on the practice squad now.

Schefter tweeted Monday that the running back would likely miss three-to-six weeks, meaning it's not a season-ender.

To make things worse for the Packers, Montgomery re-aggravated his injured ribs. He remained the Packers' featured back even after Montgomery returned from injury, relegating the converted wide receiver to snaps on a situational basis.

Williams ran the way he did in Provo - with power and persistence.

The Packers' next two games are against Baltimore and Pittsburgh - two of the better defensive units in the NFL. Montgomery once again racked up yardage on limited touches. Rookie Jamaal Williams took over to start the second half and rushed 20 times for 67 yards. There is some potential for Montgomery to return to his early season workload if the rib aggravation clears up quickly.
