Jones' injury opens door for Packers' Williams

Jones' injury opens door for Packers' Williams

The Packers led 10-3 in the second quarter after Montgomery went untouched through the line for his big TD run.

Here was Williams - who replaced Montgomery (who left with a rib injury) after starter Aaron Jones exited with a knee injury - with his number called on a fourth-and-1 play from the Bears' 49-yard line late in the fourth quarter.

Jones has 370 yards on 70 carries this season. The No. 2 overall draft pick hit Josh Bellamy for a 46-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter, but the Bears dropped their second in a row after winning back-to-back games. "I was very impressed with the way he played". "We spent a lot of time on third down this past week and I think it paid some dividends", defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.

On Sunday, he again said the main problem for the region was "Iran interfering in Arab states". "You will see", Hariri wrote, without elaborating.


Brett Hundley threw for 212 yards and a touchdown, Nick Perry had three sacks and the Packers beat the Chicago Bears 23-16 on Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak.

"Total confidence change (from) the way he started the season", McCarthy said. You always believe you're going to get what you emphasize. Coach Mike McCarthy said Montgomery is "still going through tests". They left the game during the first half, leaving the job to rookie Jamaal Williams.

The Packers badly needed a win, and McCarthy delivered the right preparation and game plan to defeat an inferior but hungry Bears team on Sunday. "You really just have to wait for them, keep your head up, keep your momentum up and be about the team".

If a recent social media post by Triple H is any indication, that won't be happening. Even if he doesn't though, at least he can have a big match otherwise.


But if they can win a few of those games, and Aaron Rodgers is eventually cleared to play, it could be enough. "He took a step today".

It wasn't ideal for the Packers to lose their top two running backs and have to play the second half with only Williams, fullback Aaron Ripkowski and receiver Randall Cobb as backfield options. I'm sure the play was well-covered in Ron Zook's special teams film review, and I'm sure Davis will think twice the next time the situation arises.

But the injuries to Jones and Montgomery are concerning for their expected severity, especially for an offense that needs all the non-quarterbacking help it can get.
