Packers coaches downplay WR Jones' complaints
Thursday, September 15, 2011
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- James Jones' coaches aren't particularly concerned that the Green Bay Packers wide receiver has voiced complaints about his role in the offense.
Wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett says everybody in the Packers' deep and talented group of wide receivers needs to make the most of their opportunities. He says opportunities will come for Jones, who caught one pass for one yard in last Thursday's season-opening victory against New Orleans.
Jones says the "main focus" is that the Packers won the game. But going into Sunday's game at Carolina, Jones also made it clear that he wants to be more involved than he was Thursday.
