Packers need to keep run game rolling

Print Article

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - For the Green Bay Packers to stay in the playoff chase, they will need production out of their running game, regardless of who is carrying the ball in their banged-up backfield.

In last weekend's victory at Chicago, rookie starter Aaron Jones suffered a knee injury and backup Ty Montgomery re-injured his ribs. Rookie Jamaal Williams carried the load with 20 carries for 67 yards.

McCarthy said Jones is out for "multiple" weeks and Montgomery missed the first two practices this week. The Packers (5-4) will move forward with Williams, a fourth-round pick, and Devante Mays, a seventh-round pick, against the visiting Baltimore Ravens (4-5) Sunday.

The Ravens' third-ranked pass defense and blitz-heavy scheme will provide the biggest test to date for Brett Hundley, who will be making his fourth NFL start. Baltimore's 28th-ranked run defense has been vulnerable.
