Jones will need to step up in Driver's absence on Sunday

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- With veteran Donald Driver sidelined by a quadriceps injury, the Green Bay Packers figure to turn to James Jones to fill the void against the Dallas Cowboys.

What the Packers don't know is which Jones will show up. Will it be the one who caught four passes for 107 yards in the Packers' most recent Sunday night game, a win over Minnesota? Or the one who failed to catch a pass against Miami on Oct. 17, nor against the New York Jets last Sunday, when he also dropped what likely would have been a 72-yard touchdown late in the third quarter of the 9-0 victory?

Packers coach Mike McCarthy ruled out Driver on Wednesday, saying the 12-year veteran is on crutches because of the injury.
