Green Bay Packers' Aaron Jones says necklace containing late father's ashes is found after he lost it in end zone

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Jones had something special planned for his first game at Lambeau Field since his father's death in April.

The Green Bay Packers running back came out for Monday night's home opener against the Detroit Lions wearing a necklace that contained Alvin Jones Sr.'s ashes in a small football-shaped medallion.

Along the way to his four-touchdown game in the Packers' 35-17 victory, Jones lost the necklace. He thinks it came off during his second-quarter touchdown catch -- the second of three receiving touchdowns to go along with a rushing score.

"If there was any place to lose it, that's where my dad would've wanted me to lose it," Jones said, referring to the end zone. "So I know he's smiling."

There was a thorough search for the pendant after the game, but it wasn't until Tuesday morning that Jones confirmed to "The Steve Czaban Show" on 97.3 The Game in Milwaukee that a team trainer had found it.

"[He] found it, so we're perfect," Jones said. "Thank you to him. He was out there until 1:45 [a.m. CT]. It shows how much they care about us."

Jones always made a point to find his father in the stands before the game. On Monday, there were 15 family members in the stands, including Jones' mother and his brother, Alvin Jr. (a linebacker who spent time with the Packers during the offseason on an extended tryout).

"I'm used to turning around and seeing my dad in the stands and just smiling to know everything is OK," Aaron Jones said. "So when I was seeing them, I was good."

Alvin Jones Sr. died of COVID-19 complications at age 56. When asked what he would've said to his father after a game like Monday's, Aaron Jones replied: "Just go home and tell him: 'I did it, Dad.'"

Jimmy Garoppolo's first half performance against the Eagles is why a team trades into the Top 3 for a QB

This should be Jimmy's last series.

The 49ers' most dangerous offensive weapon is Trey Lance. He's the queen on their chessboard. By not using him more the first two weeks, the 49ers had to fight until the end against non-playoff teams, and key players got injured in the fourth quarters of those games as a result.
