Packers lose RBs Aaron Jones (knee), Ty Montgomery (ribs)

Rookie running back Aaron Jones left Sunday's game against the Bears with a knee injury in the first half and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game.

As a result of the injury, Jones has been listed as questionable to return on Sunday afternoon against the arch rival Chicago Bears. Ty Montgomery took over as the lead running back before suffering an injury himself, likely giving way to Jamaal Williams to carry the load.

The 30-year-old veteran had just 24 receptions in seven games with the Packers but had not played since October 22 - the week before Green Bay's bye week. Because Jones is now out of the NFC North clash, Montgomery, who has encountered some injury trouble of his own this season, will be asked to carry the majority of the workload going forward.

Signed to a three-year, $21 million contract in the offseason, Bennett failed to find the end zone with Green Bay, but he appeared in all 16 games with New England last season, hauling in 55 catches and scoring a career-high seven touchdowns. He finished with three carries for 12 yards.

The Packers lost starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga to a torn ACL last week and have been without quarterback Aaron Rodgers since he broke his collarbone last month at Minnesota. Losing Jones certainly won't improve that notion either.
