Packers RB Aaron Jones believed to have suffered MCL sprain in win vs. Seahawks

After losing Aaron Jones for the remainder of Sunday's game, the Packers are now facing the possibility that he could be out for the foreseeable future.

The standout running back was ruled out of Green's Bay 17-0 victory over the Seahawks after sustaining a knee injury. Jones is believed to have suffered a sprained MCL, based on initial tests, but will undergo an MRI, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur declined to comment on Jones' health after the game, saying he did not have any update on his condition.

Jones exited the game after getting wrapped up by Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner with 1:04 remaining in the third quarter. Jones grabbed his right knee immediately following what appeared to be a routine play and attempted to limp his way off the field. The attempt was short-lived as Jones went down to the ground shortly thereafter in noticeable pain and had to be helped off the field.

A.J. Dillon came on in Jones' relief and capped off a lengthy 11-play, 62-yard drive off with a three-yard touchdown run to put Green Bay up 10-0. Dillon added another score on the following drive and finished the game with 21 carries for 66 yards.

At the time of his exit, Jones had compiled seven carries for 25 yards and four receptions for 61 yards.
