The Burges alum handled the first four offensive snaps and looked like he was on his way to having another strong performance, moving the chains an average of 4 yards per carry before injuring his knee and being carted off to the locker room.
Jones appears to be taking his injury in stride, vowing to come back "better than ever."
Thank you to everyone who reached out I’ll be back on the field soon better than ever 🙏🏾😤 — Aaron Jones 3️⃣3️⃣ (@Showtyme_33) November 14, 2017
