The Green Bay Packers could be without rookie running back Aaron Jones for a month or more. Jones was hurt on the opening drive against the Bears when his right knee appeared to get caught underneath him as he was tackled by linebacker Sam Acho.

Montgomery was unable to return to Sunday's 23-16 win over the Bears after aggravating his long-standing rib injury in the second quarter.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy believes Montgomery (ribs) has a shot to play in Sunday's game against the Ravens, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jones rushed for 125 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on October 8, and outdid himself two weeks later in a loss to the New Orleans Saints by gaining 131 yards on the ground via 17 carries. Both Jones and Montgomery have three rushing touchdowns to lead the team. The good news, however, is that Aaron Jones' knee injury is less serious than many initially feared. They left the game during the first half, leaving the job to rookie Jamaal Williams. Williams, a fourth-round pick, finished Sunday's game after Jones and Montgomery dropped out and rushed for a season-high 67 yards on 20 carries.

Jones totaled 12 yards in Week 10.
