Packers running back Aaron Jones found himself in an untimely situation on Sunday night.
Towards the conclusion of the Packers-Vikings game, tensions flared between the Vikings’ Andrew Booth Jr. and several Packers players.
The situation escalated to the point where a Packers player threw a punch at Booth, inadvertently connecting with Jones instead.
Jones addressed the postgame scuffle during his postgame interview, explaining, “We were walking out to shake hands, and I saw one of our players getting into it with a Vikings player who had just finished playing. They went face-to-face, started shoving, so I stepped in to de-escalate, moved them to the sideline, and things settled down after that.”
Experiencing a punch to the face is certainly more bearable when it comes after a significant win for the Packers.
