Found October 14, 2013 on The Pack Mentality:
And now, for some good news. One vital piece of the Packers aerial team could be back on the field way sooner than anyone probably expected. Today, Jones was diagnosed with a strained PCL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That means the team is looking at the option of him starting as early as this Sunday for the team's tilt against the Cleveland Browns. That would be a huge boon for the team's passing game, considering it currently only has two other wide receivers on the 53-man roster consisting of Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin. If Jones is slated to come back Sunday, the team may not be as hurt by its current available receiving corps, but they do have some insurance on the practice squad in the form of Myles White. So far this season, Jones has hauled in 20 receptions for 349 yards and two TDs. He has also been a physical beast by blocking in the Packers running game. His injury came when he was blocking for Eddie Lacy.
