Jones (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Mike Spofford of packers.com reports.
Neither did AJ Dillon, who was listed as questionable with groin injury last week before ultimately suiting up and filling in for Jones as the lead back in a 29-22 win over the Lions. Another absence for Jones would come as no surprise given that he's just a week and a half removed from suffering an MCL sprain. Should both Jones and Dillon miss the upcoming game against Kansas City, the Packers would be left with Patrick Taylor as their top running back.

Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game at Detroit, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
One day removed from coach Matt LaFleur telling Ryan Wood of USA Today that Jones was "highly unlikely" to play Week 12, the running back indeed won't be available Thursday due to the sprained MCL that he suffered this past Sunday against the Chargers. After Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) was placed on IR on Wednesday, the Packers are left with AJ Dillon as their potential lead runner, but he's listed as questionable due to a groin issue. If Dillon isn't able to go, either, the team's backfield will be down to Patrick Taylor and James Robinson.
Coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday that Jones (knee) is "highly unlikely" to play Thursday at Detroit, but he doesn't believe the running back will be placed on injured reserve, Ryan Wood of USA Today reports.
LaFleur's comment backs up a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN earlier Tuesday that Jones has an MCL sprain and is deemed week-to-week after getting injured this past Sunday against the Chargers. Jones predictably has been listed as a non-participant on both of the Packers' Week 12 practice reports, while AJ Dillon (groin) has been listed as limited and Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) has been a DNP on both occasions. Assuming Jones sits out Thursday, Dillon would be in line for the top gig out of Green Bay's backfield, assuming he's healthy enough to play himself.
Jones has been diagnosed with an MCL sprain and is considered week-to-week, making him unlikely to play Thursday at Detroit, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Jones went down with a knee injury late in the second quarter of Sunday's eventual win against the Chargers, during which he was carted to the locker room. After undergoing an MRI on Monday, the extent of the damage has been unveiled. Considering Jones isn't slated to be available Thursday and reserve RB Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) isn't practicing this week, AJ Dillon (groin) appears poised to be Green Bay's lead runner Week 12 and potentially beyond, assuming he's able to suit up. Beyond Dillon, Patrick Taylor was signed off the Patriots' practice squad Monday, while James Robinson and Ellis Merriweather are backfield options on the Packers' practice squad.
Jones (knee) was estimated as DNP on Monday's practice reports.
The Packers didn't actually practice Monday but were required to release an injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Lions. Jones was injured early in Sunday's win over the Chargers and had to be carted to the locker room. Reports after the game suggested Jones avoided a serious injury, but Thursday's quick turnaround may be too much to overcome. If Jones doesn't play, the Packers will lean on AJ Dillon and Patrick Taylor.
Jones said after Sunday's win against the Chargers that a preliminary test showed that the ACL in his injured knee is intact, and he'll undergo an MRI on Monday to find out the extent of the issue, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
This follows coach Matt LaFleur telling Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com that he doesn't believe Jones has a "long term" injury. As such, Jones appears to have avoided a worst-case scenario, with Monday's testing to determine how much, if any, time he may miss moving forward. Reserve running back Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) also was ruled out of Sunday's game, so AJ Dillon is the only healthy running back on the Packers' active roster, while undrafted rookie Ellis Merriweather resides on the practice squad.
Following Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers, coach Matt LaFleur noted that he doesn't think the knee injury Jones suffered in the contest is long term, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Per Demovsky, LaFleur relayed that Jones -- who was limited to four carries and one catch Sunday -- was in good spirits following the contest, but the running back's status will nonetheless need to be monitored closely as Thursday's game against the Lions approaches. If Jones ends up sidelined in Week 12, AJ Dillon would be in line for an expanded workload.
Jones (knee) won't return to Sunday's contest against the Chargers.
Jones has been plagued by a hamstring injury for most of the season, and he now is dealing with a new health concern after he appeared to get his leg stuck in the turf as he was tackled on a carry just minutes before halftime. He'll thus finish Week 11 with four carries for 14 yards and one catch (on two targets) for three yards. With Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) also departing the game for good on the same drive, AJ Dillon is the only healthy running back for the Packers for the rest of Sunday.
Jones suffered a knee injury during Sunday's game versus the Chargers, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Jones got medical attention on the field following a carry late in the second quarter in which his leg appeared to get stuck in the turf as he was tackled. He then was assisted to the sideline tent and eventually took a cart to the locker room, from which the Packers deemed him questionable to return. With Jones sidelined, AJ Dillon should be the main beneficiary out of the Packers backfield.
