Jones suffered a quadriceps injury during Friday's third preseason game and will not play in Thursday' finale versus the Chiefs, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Jones will rest his quad during practice this week, as the Packers turn closer attention to getting their starters healthy for Week 1. On that front, coach Mike McCarthy said Jones should be ready for Green Bay's Sept. 4 opener in Seattle. However, while Jones remains sidelined, Jabari Lattimore figures to start at inside linebacker, with Sam Barrington featuring as Jones' replacement in dime packages.

Packers ILB Brad Jones is in danger of losing his starting job.
Jones started only 12 games last season due to injuries, recording 84 tackles and three sacks. He graded out negatively both against the run and in pass coverage, and could face competition from Jamari Lattimore and Sam Barrington in camp. Fourth-round pick Carl Bradford will also likely get a look at inside linebacker.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky thinks the team may look to upgrade on ILB Brad Jones.
GM Ted Thompson handed Jones a three-year, $11.75 million deal last March. Jones started all 12 games he appeared in, notching 84 tackles and three sacks. However, he received poor marks from Pro Football Focus both against the run and in coverage. The Packers could save $1.925 million against the cap by releasing Jones, though there's been no talk of that to this point.

Brad Jones is locked into the starting weak-inside linebacker spot in Green Bay's defense following Desmond Bishop's release.
Earning a three-year, $11.75 million offseason contract, Jones tallied 88 tackles over Green Bay's final 11 games last year, adding two sacks and a forced fumble. The Packers' WILB position is highly productive in nature and gives Jones strong IDP potential. He will be an every-down player this season.

Packers re-signed ILB Brad Jones.
Jones was one of the better linebackers left on the market. A 12-game starter, including the playoffs, last season, Jones recorded 92 tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus graded the soon-to-be 27-year-old as a top-ten inside linebacker in 2012, and he'll likely compete with A.J. Hawk for the starting spot next to Desmond Bishop this summer.
