His return and the win dominated the headlines, but a key injury appeared to be suffered during the game.
Running back Aaron Jones left the game with a knee injury, and the severity was unknown at the time.
That was a tough blow and fears of the worst-case scenario immediately creeped in.
Luckily, news broke Monday revealing he is not out for the remainder of the season.
#Packers RB Aaron Jones was found to have a mild MCL sprain after his MRI, source said, which mean he’s out 1-2 weeks. Relatively good news overall.

So there are no tears, but rather an MCL sprain that will keep Jones out for a few weeks.
That is a huge win for the Packers following an actual victory on the field.

Trying To Get Going In 2021
Jones has been off to a relatively slow start in 2021 after posting consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020.
But the Packers offense in general is not too run-heavy with Rodgers leading the way through the air.
Jones is at 541 yards so far through 10 games with one 100-yard performance to his name.
We should also note he has 298 receiving yards as well, which is an area of the offense in which he remains a weapon as well.
Jones being gone for a week or two is a best-case scenario and will allow AJ Dillon to step in and get some starter reps.
The 2020 second-round pick finished Sunday’s win with 21 carries for 66 yards and two touchdowns.
He also had a 50-yard reception that had the Green Bay faithful roaring out in the frozen tundra.
The Packers have Rodgers back and are top Super Bowl contenders with an 8-2 record.
Losing Jones for the season would have been a problem, but they should be just fine for a week or two without him now that the legendary signal-caller is back under center.
