GREEN BAY – The only bad news – other than the final score, of course – to come out of the Green Bay Packers’ 17-0 shutout loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Friday night’s preseason opener at Lambeau Field was that first-round draft pick Datone Jones left the game after one play with a sprained left ankle.
“Datone Jones has an ankle sprain. Like a lot of those injuries, I think tomorrow will be a better indicator,” coach Mike McCarthy said after the game.
The Packers had 17 players not dress for the game: Wide receivers Kevin Dorsey (hamstring), Charles Johnson (knee) and Randall Cobb (biceps); running backs DuJuan Harris (knee) and Eddie Lacy (hamstring); safety Sean Richardson (neck); cornerback Casey Hayward (hamstring); cornerback Tramon Williams (knee); offensive lineman JC Tretter (ankle); left tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee); offensive lineman Andrew Datko (concussion); tackle Derek Sherrod (leg); tight end Andrew Quarless (quadriceps); tight end Ryan Taylor (knee); wide receiver Jordy Nelson (knee); and defensive end Jerel Worthy (knee).
Jones, a rookie out of UCLA, lined up next to B.J. Raji in the Packers’ sub package as an inside rusher when he was in the game.
