After coming out in the 8th week with a calf injury, there is a chance that the Packers are chasing Aaron Jones for Thursday’s game against the 49ers Aaron, but if he can’t play, things could be tough for Green Bay.
Things are also currently standing, even if Jones Jones plays he will be in a limited role According to NFL.com. The Packers usually have AJ Dillon and Jamal Williams on the depth chart when they run back to second and third, but both players were placed on the reserve / covid-19 list earlier this week, disqualifying them from playing on Thursday.
If Jones can’t go, it means the Packers will be forced to play two running backs – Taylor Erwin and Dexter Williams, who are so far below the depth chart that there’s a good chance that most NFL fans have. Never heard of them before this week. Basically, Aaron Rogers will be directing Backfield which will feature two players from Irwin and Williams, who have teamed up for exactly four carry this year.
That may not be the ideal position for some quarterbacks, but Rogers clearly sees it as an “entertaining challenge.”
“I think you are as a competitor Always excited about challenges“You’re sure you’d love to have your boys there at full strength, but there’s a fun challenge to go and try to find without some men,” Rogers said this week via the team’s official website. Way to win. “
This is not the first time this season that the Packers have missed an offensive firepower. Len Lon Lazard will not play on Thursday, he has missed the game for the third time this year. Rogers star receiver Davant Adams missed two games earlier this season, and the Packers went 2-0 up in those games.
“I don’t think we’re always haunted by some of the work we do,” Rogers said. “We had to mix some staff and move around with some boys to get our best men on the field and give us some benefits through the use of some staff. That won’t change.”
Apparently, Packers coach Matt LaFleur becomes extra creative when he has the limited man power to deal with crime.
“I think (coach) Matt (LaFleur) has this beauty and this year the offensive staff are looking for creative ways to field our best guys and put them in a position to get the ball in space.” . “This week is no different.”
Probably a factor as to why they’re doing so poorly. Rogers seems to be a fan of both.
“I love [Williams], “Rogers said.” The decks have a really good attitude. He has done a good job of growing up in crime and feeling more comfortable with his responsibilities in checking and pass blocking and route-running. Looks like he’s settled down a bit more this year and feels more confident. “
Speaking of Irwin, Rogers liked the fact that he could play basically any offensive skill position.
“It can do a lot,” Rogers said. “That receiver can play. He can be our fly-option guy. He can play in the backfield. With those two guys in protocol, we’ll make sure we play him a big role this week.” Getting our best friends on the field. Is. ‘
There is a good chance that both players will see some serious action on Thursday and that is because even if Jones plays he is not expected to be on the field for every game. According to NFL.com, the Packers are running after the star If it ends it will be in a “limited role”.
