Packers RB Aaron Jones recovers necklace containing father's ashes after losing it against Lions

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones recovered the necklace containing his father's ashes that he was wearing during Monday's 35-17 win over the Detroit Lions.

Jones revealed the good news during an appearance on the "Steve Czaban Show" Tuesday.

Jones scored four touchdowns in Monday's win at Lambeau Field and lost the necklace on one of those scores. After the game, he said the grounds crew was looking for it and added that his father would be happy he lost the necklace in the end zone.

"If there was any place to lose it, I know that's where my dad would want me to lose it," Jones said. "I know he's smiling."

Jones's father, Alvin Jones Sr., died of complications from COVID-19 in April. He was 57.
