AJ Dillon set to start after injury on the sidelines of Aaron Jones


Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon is expected to start in the immediate future. Adam Schefter announced today that Packers starter Aaron Jones will miss the next 1-2 weeks with a slight MCL sprain.

Dillon had a huge game for the Packers on Saturday against the Seattle Seahawks, recording two touchdowns and over 125 yards in both rushing and passing play. He finished the game averaging 3.1 yards rushing, but his two touchdowns came close to the goal line against a strong Seattle defense. This season, he’s run for 421 yards, mostly as a comeback from behind Jones, to go with the two touchdowns.

While at Boston College, Dillon was a reliable physical backhand known for his big runs in big situations, ending his career as the all-time leader in rushing yards. His biggest game came against Louisville in 2017, where he rushed for 272 yards and four touchdowns, defeating Lamar Jackson. He ended his career in British Columbia with 4,382 rushing yards, 38 touchdowns and an average of 5.2 yards per carry. He was selected by the Packers in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Green Bay travels to Minnesota to face the Vikings on Sunday, a 1pm game that can be found on FOX.
