Aaron Rodgers says Packers need to keep feeding Aaron Jones

Aaron Rodgers

The lack of a consistent running game has contributed to some of the struggles the Green Bay Packers have had on offense over the last two seasons, but Aaron Jones may be well on his way to solving that problem. His MVP quarterback certainly seems to think so.

On the heels of Jones rushing for 145 yards and two touchdowns in a win over the Miami Dolphins, Rodgers spoke about the important role the running back has played in moving the chains and in red zone situations.

Jones, who was suspended for the first two games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, is averaging 6.8 yards per carry on the season. His touches have significantly increased over the past four games, and he’s making the most of them. Jamaal Williams, who began the season as the starter, has all but been phased out of the running game.

Green Bay’s offense is nowhere near as explosive as it used to be, and Jones can help change that if he continues to play at a high level.
