Packers James Jones admits to playing in pain


At full strength, the Green Bay Packers employ one of the most talented offenses in the league. But missing Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb has put a severe damper on the Packers’ offense and now wide receiver James Jones admits he’s not fully healthy after suffering an early season knee injury.

Jones, who missed two games after the Ravens’ Courtney Upshaw leg whipped him has struggled since his return and finally admitted that some of those struggles are likely coming from the lingering pain:

“It’s getting better every week. It’s a process,” Jones said. “I have to play with a little pain. That’s football. Everybody on the team is playing with some pain. I have to play through it. That’s where that’s at. I’m fighting through it and trying to be the best player I can be to help my team win.”

In addition to the pain, Jones is also now playing with Scott Tolzien rather than the much more familiar Rodgers.

Jones has six catches in the past two weeks.

      This isn’t something that would be caught in our editor where we produce content. It is an HTML glitch and not a proofreading error. Still, thank you for bringing it to our attention. It should be fixed now.

          Again, it is not a proofreading error. It is an HTML glitch. The area where we write the articles doesn’t show us potential HTML errors. It happens, we don’t like it and will try to fix it whenever it happens. Again, we’re sorry and thank you again for pointing it out to us and providing us the opportunity to fix it.
