The Green Bay Packers running back room is looking depleted. Jamaal Williams, who has replaced Aaron Jones the past couple of weeks, will not play Thursday against the 49ers as he is high-risk, close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
Rookie running back AJ Dillon was the player that Williams was in close contact with. Dillon tested positive yesterday. With the status of Jones coming back from a calf injury up in the air, the Packers are down to Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams.
Linebacker Kamal Martin will also miss Thursday night’s game against San Francisco as he also was deemed high-risk, close contact to Dillon.
