Jones also missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He injured his knee in Week 6 against the Ravens and was initially expected to miss 2-3 weeks, a timeline that would put him back for next week's division showdown with the Bears at the earliest.
The Packers are hurting at the receiver position, with Aaron Rodgers missing three of his favorite targets heading into Sunday. The speedy Randall Cobb was placed on injured reserve-designated to return after he broke his leg against Baltimore, and tight end Jermichael Finley is out indefinitely after suffering a scary bruised spinal cord injury last week.
That leaves the reliable Jordy Nelson and second-year man Jarrett Boykin as the top wideouts against the Vikings. Boykin stepped up big last week during his first significant playing time as a pro, catching eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown.
