Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones was a limited practice participant on Thursday according to Green Bay's official injury report. Jones had been resting a knee injury and has not played since Oct. 13 against the Baltimore Ravens back in Week 6. In his place, WR Jarrett Boykin has excelled and likely taken some pressure off the team to rush Jones back into the fold.
The Packers offense seems to be only getting stronger despite a small wave of injuries in recent weeks which held out Jones and Jermichael Finley. RB Eddie Lacy has a lot to do with that, rushing the ball extremely well and opening up the play-action pass. The Packers also have RB James Starks back in the mix which helps keep Lacy fresh. Having Jones back would simply be icing on the cake. Jones will be a game-time decision in all likelihood.
