Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will miss the final two games of the season after being placed on injured reserve.

 

The team's leading rusher left the 24-17 loss to Chicago on Sunday in the first quarter with a knee injury. The defeat helped eliminate the Packers from playoff contention.

 

Jones ran for 728 yards and eight touchdowns on 133 carries in 12 games, including eight starts. He was among the league leaders in averaging 5.5 yards per attempt.

 

Jones was suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy and missed the first two games this year.
