Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones was suspended two games by the NFL for violation of the substance abuse policy. That and more news from the past week in this week’s weekly roundup.
Packers running back Aaron Jones was suspended two games last week for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. The violation stems from an arrest involving marijuana during a traffic stop last October.
