GREEN BAY – The weekly awards keep piling up for Aaron Jones.
For the second time in three weeks, the Packers running back has been named the NFL’s rookie of the week after rushing for 131 yards and a touchdown last Sunday against New Orleans.
A fifth-round pick out of UTEP, Jones also was honored as the league’s rookie of the week after a 125-yard performance against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5.
Jones carried the ball four times for 70 yards on Green Bay’s opening offensive series, including a 46-yard touchdown run to put the Packers on the board early. He has 62 carries for 346 yards and three touchdowns over the last four games.
