  • Pending Injuries, Packers' RB Aaron Jones Could Be Legitimate Fantasy Football Play

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are fresh off of a 35-14 victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Montgomery's injury isn't serious and he could still play against the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday. In the end, we'll have a better bearing on his ability to suit up once the Packers release their first Week 5 injury report Wednesday. Linebacker Joe Thomas also the game with an ankle injury.

Montgomery left after Green Bay's first offensive series against the Bears and didn't return.

So far this season, the converted wide receiver has rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns on 46 carries. After all, the Packers are still going to throw the ball plenty with Aaron Rodgers under center, and Williams probably won't dominate the ball right away.

Packers: Aaron Jones impresses after injuries to Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams

If the Packers are without Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams for an extended amount of time, Jones could be a sneaky flex play in fantasy football, especially in PPR leagues.

Keep an eye on him when waivers hit this week.

The rookie out of UTEP was the last remaining healthy back active for the game, with fellow rookie Devante Mays inactive. Those carries represented more than half of Green Bay's rushing attempts (24 total in the game). He has made that a football life of the past, becoming the a multi-threat option, also hauling in 18 receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown this year out of the backfield.
