Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones intends to play in the team’s Week 7 matchup against the Denver Broncos, barring a setback, sources told Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins (knee) is also expected to play, while cornerback Jaire Alexander (back) will be a game-time decision, Pelissero adds.

Jones has missed three of the last four games due to a hamstring injury he suffered in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.


The 28-year-old suited up in Green Bay’s Week 4 contest versus the Detroit Lions, but he re-aggravated the injury and missed the following game.

The Packers’ rush offense is off to a slow start this season, ranking 27th in rushing yards per game. Green Bay has had a top-20 rushing attack in every campaign since 2019.
