Is Aaron Jones Playing in Week 12? (Fantasy Football Injury Updates)
Is Aaron Jones going to play Week 12? Let’s take a look.
Is Aaron Jones Playing in Week 11?
Aaron Jones practiced for the third straight day on Friday and remains a game-time decision for Sunday against the Rams.
Jones was initially expected to miss 1-2 weeks after suffering a “mild” MCL sprain. He has missed one week so far. The Packers are on bye next week so they may decide to sit Jones one more week to then give him the extra week but after getting in limited practices all week, he has a chance to play on Sunday.

What the experts are saying
Jones missed Week 11 with an MCL sprain but got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He remains out of the Week 12 rankings for now, but if he plays, he’ll slot in as a mid-range RB2 against a solid Rams run defense. With Jones out last week, the Packers were pass-heavy, but Dillon still had a solid day with 11-53-0 rushing and 6-44-0 receiving. His usage in the passing game has been a pleasant surprise, and Dillon displayed his talent in that phase of the game with an artful grab of a high Aaron Rodgers throw last week. Dillon will be a back-end RB1 if Jones doesn’t play, a lower-end RB2 if Jones is active.
