ESPN2 minute read
The Green Bay Packers will likely be without two of their best offensive players when they face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Running back Aaron Jones and receiver Christian Watson, both listed as questionable for the game, are expected to be sidelined with hamstring injuries, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Jones, a seven-year veteran, missed practice all week. He had 127 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns on just 11 touches in the Packers’ Week 1 win over the Chicago Bears, but sprained a hamstring on one of the scores.
The Packers promoted running back Patrick Taylor from their practice squad on Saturday.
Watson will miss his second straight game after sitting out the first game. He missed practices Wednesday and Thursday, but returned as a limited participant on Friday.
Watson, a second-year player, had 41 receptions for 611 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie last season.
