The account that shared the video accurately called the injury “horrific,” and it would have been a tough blow for the team had Jones been the only injury suffered in the game, let alone that drive. But just a few plays later, undrafted rookie running back Emanuel Wilson suffered a shoulder injury that also required a medical cart to come retrieve him, per ESPN. Despite needing a cart. the Wilson injury, unlike the Jones injury, looked like a completely pedestrian football play: Spotrac, Jones has just one year left on that renegotiated deal. As of Sunday afternoon, the Packers officially have one healthy running back on the roster: second-string running back AJ Dillon (Jones is the starter, Wilson is the third-string back). The Packers, now 4-6, actually still have an outside chance at making the playoffs though that task got considerably harder for up-and-down starting quarterback Jordan Love without his starting running back. The Chargers, meanwhile, fell to the same 4-6 record as the Packers, a mild disappointment for a team that many had pegged as a playoff lock. The Chargers also suffered a brutal blow in the loss, losing superstar pass rusher Joey Bosa to a foot injury on the opening drive. The Packers next play on Thanksgiving, so they won’t have much time to lick their wounds when they travel to face the division-leading Detroit Lions. The Chargers, meanwhile, will play in the Thanksgiving weekend main event, when they host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football.
