A report says that the Green Bay Packers' starting running back will miss anywhere from three weeks to most of the rest of the 2017 campaign after a knee injury.

Adam Schefter of ESPN says Aaron Jones suffered an MCL injury during the Packers' win against Chicago. That injury will keep him sidelined from three to six weeks, according to Schefter.

A promising rookie from UTEP, Jones twice ran for more than 100 yards during the month of October, with performances of 125 yards at Dallas and 131 yards vs. New Orleans.

Ty Montgomery also suffered a re-aggravation of his rib injury, leading to Jamaal Williams as the only healthy full-time running back on the Packers roster at the end of Sunday's win.
