Aaron Jones named NFL rookie of the week
Green Bay running back and former UTEP Miner Aaron Jones won the NFL’s rookie of the week.
Jones won for his 19-carry, 125-yard rushing performance against the Dallas Cowboys.
It was his first NFL start and also scored his second pro-touchdown on a 7-yard run late in the second quarter.
Prior to the TD, he made a diving 9-yard catch along the sideline for a first down.
Jones became the first Packers rookie running back to rush for at least 100 yards in a game since Eddie Lacy in 2013, according to packers.com.
