James Jones injury update: Packers keep him out of practice, fantasy owners should stay tuned

Tom Lynn

James Jones is getting some rest on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Packers receiver James Jones did not practice on Wednesday. He had a knee sprain on Sunday and did not return to the game.

Jones has a PCL sprain, so this isn't a garden variety injury. He's been fairly durable in his career and the team is expecting him to suit up for Week 7 against the Browns.

Jones' season has been full of ups and downs with a goose egg to start the year followed by a massive 11-catch game in Week 2. He also had a 127-yard game in Week 4, but in the other two games he didn't reach 35 yards.

Fantasy impact: It should be a great game for Jones against the Browns. Joe Haden will likely match up with Jordy Nelson, and Randall Cobb is going to miss at least six weeks with a broke leg. Fantasy owners will have to be on the lookout for status updates, but the bad news is that he plays in a late game. He should be in all lineups, but it may behoove owners to have a backup that plays Sunday evening or later.
