The Packers made it through the first half of Thursday night’s preseason tilt with the Tennessee Titans without a major injury. However, safety Josh Jones left the game during the third quarter to undergo a concussion evaluation.

It remains unclear exactly when or how Jones suffered the possible concussion. Regardless, the second-year defensive back likely won’t return to the action even if he passes the concussion protocol given the game does not count in the standings. Assuming the Packers hold him out the remainder of the night, Jones finishes without making an appearance in the stat sheet.

In the immediate wake of Jones’ departure, Quinten Rollins and Marwin Evans lined up deep at safety.

A second-round pick in 2017, Jones played in numerous roles as a rookie, including off-ball linebacker. The Packers have simplified his role in 2018, deploying him primarily as a traditional safety. He has battled Kentrell Brice for the starting job opposite of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
