James Jones injury: Packers receiver questionable to return with leg injury

Tom Lynn

Given the Packers' current lack of depth at wide receiver, James Jones' injury could be a bit of a problem.

Update: Jones has been declared out for the game. The extent of his injury is still to be determined.

The Green Bay Packers will be without James Jones for at least a drive, and perhaps for the rest of their game against the Baltimore Ravens. He went down with a leg injury in the first quarter and has been called questionable return. The Packers are not currently specifying which leg or which part of his leg was injured.

Jones sustained the injury while blocking on the outside, close to the line of scrimmage. The injury appeared to be to his right knee.

The Packers currently have just four wide receivers active. Seeing as they run a large number of three or more wide receiver sets, this means that Jarrett Boykin could get a good deal of work. Additionally, expect to see a lot less of Jermichael Finley with his hand in the dirt and a lot more of him standing up for the rest of the game, which could lead to some additional work for the other tight ends.
