The Packers are set to play another game without running back Aaron Jones.
Jones was limited in practice all week because of the knee injury that has kept him out of the team’s last two games and he was listed as questionable on Saturday. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Jones is not expected to play against the Giants on Monday night, however.
If Jones is out, it will be the sixth game he's missed due to injuries this season, the story pointed out. Dillon has served as the lead back in Jones’ absence from the lineup and would continue in that role with Taylor as the No. 2. The Packers could also elevate Drake from the practice squad for further backfield depth, the story went on to say.
Atwell left the game in the second quarter and it opened the door for Robinson to see more playing time. He finished with a 3-46-1 line on 10 targets. The trend has been for players to miss a game when placed in protocol so this could be a situation to watch heading into Week 15 for Atwell. It would be tough to trust Robinson in typical leagues, especially running behind Kupp and Nacua.
The Jaguars didn’t get the win on Sunday, but on a positive note quarterback Trevor Lawrence got through the game just fine.
“I felt pretty good, all things considered,” Lawrence said in his postgame press conference. “That was a positive out of today. I guess that’s the only one. I didn’t re-injure my ankle, or tweak or anything. I felt pretty good. It held up. I was able to move when needed. It was good.”
As the story said, Lawrence kept his starting streak alive. He was, of course, dealing with a high ankle sprain after a Monday night game. Lawrence finished Week 14 by going 28-of-50 for 257 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions. While the Jags probably didn't want him to throw 50 times, and the three picks were ideal for fantasy owners, it looks like Lawrence will be good to go for owners who need him in the upcoming fantasy playoffs.
