Aaron Jones Recovers Necklace With Father's Ashes After Losing It In The End Zone


Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones was the best player on the field during the team's 35-17 route of the Detroit Lions on Monday night. However, in the process of scoring four touchdowns, Jones lost his necklace containing his father's ashes. Fortunately, the football-shaped necklace has been recovered and will be with Jones for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old is dedicating this season to his late father, Alvin, who died of COVID complications in April. 
While it was poignant to many to hear that Jones had lost his father's ashes, the star running back looked at it in a different way. He explained that "if there was any place to lose it, I know that's where my dad would want me to lose it," referring to the end zone.

 

Jones had 67 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown. Also, the Pro Bowler caught six passes for 48 yards and three touchdown scores. However, his success didn't stop there, as Jones became the first player since Marshall Faulk to record four touchdowns on Monday Night Football. He is also the first Packers running back to catch three touchdown passes since Andy Uram did it in 1942.
