RB Aaron Jones

GREEN BAY – For the second time this season, Packers running back Aaron Jones has been named the FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

Jones rushed for 130 yards on 15 carries, highlighted by a career-long 77-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, to propel the Packers to a 30-16 victory over Philadelphia at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

By winning the award, as determined by a fan vote, FedEx will honor Jones by working with Direct Relief to deliver an emergency medical backpack to a local community health center in the Green Bay market. The backpack will help take care of 500 people in this community.

The fourth-year running back also was honored with the award after rushing for a career-high 168 yards and two touchdowns in a 42-21 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 2.

The other Week 13 nominees for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week were the New York Giants' Wayne Gallman and Denver's Melvin Gordon.
