James Jones Injury: Sprained PCL May Allow Packers' Receiver to Play on Sunday

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The first batch of good injury news is in, as James Jones might be able to play against the Browns.

Casey Hayward, Clay Matthews, Brad Jones, James Jones, Randall Cobb, Nick Perry ... all of those players are substantial pieces of the puzzle for the Green Bay Packers, and all have suffered injuries recently. Luckily for Packers fans, there is finally some good news on one of them, and it comes courtesy of ESPN insider Adam Schefter:

Thank the maker.

Jones' relatively minor injury may be a key reason why the Packers were waiting to sign any additional wide receivers today. It seems likely that he will be eased back into practice during the week, but hopefully he will be able to play at close to full strength against a Cleveland Browns team that has put up a good start to the season defending the pass in 2013.

We'll have more on Cobb, Perry, and the rest of the injured players as soon as we can.
