GREEN BAY – Aaron Jones has again been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week following his 20-carry, 145-yard performance in Saturday's 24-16 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fans are encouraged to vote for Jones here, on Twitter via the @NFL published polls and on the NFL Mobile App. Voting is open until Wednesday at 2 p.m. CT.

Jones rushed for 145 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries against Carolina, including a 46-yard run on the Packers' third offensive play to key their first scoring drive. His 114 total yards in the first half were the second-most by a Packers running back since 2004, behind only Ty Montgomery's 123 against Chicago in 2016.

Jones has won the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award twice this season, after rushing for a career-high 168 yards against Detroit in Week 2 and 130 yards against Philadelphia in Week 13.

By winning the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Award, FedEx will honor each weekly quarterback and running back by working with Direct Relief to deliver an emergency medical backpack to a local community health center in their market. The backpack will help take care of 500 people in this community.

The other Week 15 nominees for FedEx Ground Player of the Week are Chicago's David Montgomery and Tennessee's Derrick Henry.
