James Jones injury: Packers WR out vs. Ravens after hurting leg

Tom Lynn

The Packers lost WR James Jones early in Baltimore.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones has left his game against the Baltimore Ravens with a lower leg injury and his return is questionable.


Jones was seen favoring his leg as he limped off the field. He had one reception for 10 yards before exiting the game.

Jarrett Boykin, who replaced Jones, is a second-year veteran who entered the game with five career catches.

Jones, in his seventh year, has been a major factor in the Packers' passing attack this season, providing Aaron Rodgers with a reliable set of hands after the departure of Greg Jennings in the offseason. Jones has 19 catches for 339 yards and two touchdowns this season.

His biggest performance came in a Week 2 win over the Redskins, where he had 11 catches on 12 targets and piled up 178 yards. He also went over the 100-yard mark last week in a win over Detroit, going for 127 yards and a touchdown.

UPDATE: The Packers have announced that Jones is out for the rest of the game:

In addition to Jones, the Packers are now also without star wideout Randall Cobb, who took a nasty shot to the lower leg just before the half in Baltimore. More on Cobb's injury here.
