“I’m mostly just going to see how it reacts tomorrow (Sunday),” he said. “If it reacts pretty good, we might have a decent shot. If I wake up sore and all that stuff, I don’t know.
The Green Bay Packers at home are a favorite to win this game against a Bears squad that is depleted and not that good right now. I think there is little reason to risk Jones at this point, especially with the other wide receivers picking up the slack and the running game being effective at this time.
Another week for Jones to recover further ensures his effectiveness in the passing game and gives the younger receivers more experience. If this were a game where the Packers were not favored, I might reconsider, but even then the smart money is to let Jones rest as much as possible.
The schedule at this point calls for home games against the Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles, both games the Packers could win without Jones’s services. Frankly, I would wait until the New York Giants game in New York in two weeks.
