Aaron Jones Limited Again Tuesday

Tuesday, September 26, 6:05 PM

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant again on Tuesday in the team's walkthrough practice. Jones suffered a left-hamstring injury in the season opener and has now missed back-to-back games, but this was the fourth straight limited practice, giving him a shot to suit up on a short week this Thursday night against the division-rival Detroit Lions. Despite the fact that Jones appears to be making progress, the 28-year-old could very be questionable on Wednesday's final injury report and could be a game-time decision on Thursday. If he makes his return in Week 4, don't be surprised if the Packers limit his snaps and ease him into the backfield. Backup AJ Dillon has totally flopped so far in an expanded role the last two weeks with Jones sidelined.

Isiah Pacheco Brushes Off Hamstring Injury In Sunday’s Rout

Monday, September 25, 1:47 AM

Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) rushed 15 times for 62 yards and a touchdown with two receptions for 16 yards in Week 3's crushing 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears. The 24-year-old was rocked on a helmet-to-helmet hit while attempting to find the end zone in the first quarter, ceding the goal-to-go score to Jerick McKinnon a few plays later. Pacheco ripped off an 18-yard scamper early in the second period, but watched as other backfield mate Clyde Edwards-Helaire fought his way past the goal line for a one-yard touchdown later that drive. Pacheco finally joined the party, however, visiting the end zone following a Chiefs takeaway to cap off a strong 66-yard first half. Pacheco delivered in a smash spot for K.C.'s running game on Sunday, but could have had an enormous day, considering there were four RB scores to be had. The 2022 seventh-rounder might embrace a heavy workload if the sputtering New York Jets fall behind in Week 4 next Sunday night.
