(WNFL) - Green Bay Packers' receiver James Jones remains a question mark for Sunday night's contest at Minnesota. Coach Mike McCarthy revealed for the first time yesterday that the medical staff had Jones out for 2-to-3 weeks with the sprained P-C-L knee ligament he suffered at Baltimore nine days ago. Last week, McCarthy made it sound like he was holding out hope that Jones could play in Sunday's home win over Cleveland -- which he didn't. Yesterday, the coach said Jones is quote, "not your normal guy ... He's genetically-gifted, so we'll see what happens." With Jones and Randall Cobb out, tight end Jermichael Finley sometimes lined up as a slot receiver before he got hurt against the Browns -- and his spin move just before his first-quarter touchdown made E-S-P-N's highlights of the week. Second-year receiver Jarrett Boykin had a breakout day against the Browns, with 103 yards and the Packers' final touchdown. Jordy Nelson remains healthy, and rookie receiver Myles White is expected to play a bigger receiving role -- as well as the Packers' three back-up tight ends. The Packer players are off today, after taking over first place in the N-F-C North Division with their victory over the Browns. They'll start practicing tomorrow for the Minnesota contest.
