Packers RB Jamaal Williams (shoulder, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 17. With Williams out, Aaron Jones should see a monster workload in an important game for the Packers. They can secure a first round bye with a win and have a shot at the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC. Tyler Ervin saw some snaps last week but Dexter Williams was inactive for the game. They could also promote Damarea Crockett from the practice squad. With Jamaal Williams barely playing in Week 4 and missing Week 5, Aaron Jones turned 45 touches into 240 yards and scored five touchdowns. That included 26 touches for 182 yards and four TDs against the Cowboys.
It's important to note that both Wednesday and Thursday were estimated reports. The Packers did not practice Wednesday and held a walkthrough on Thursday. Still, not a good sign for his availability in Week 17. The Packers might just rest Williams this week to get him ready for the playoffs. That would mean Aaron Jones has a tremendous opportunity for fantasy owners against the Lions. Keep watch for Friday's report and official status.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (knee) took limited practice reps again Friday. Williams practiced again so Thursday's injury scare should be behind him. He should play against Washington.
