Packers' Jones, Bucs' Whitehead leave NFC championship game

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Green Bay running back Aaron Jones left Sunday's NFC championship game early in the third quarter with a chest injury suffered when he was tackled and fumbled going to the ground on a hit by Tampa Bay safety Jordan Whitehead.

Jones' fumble set up Tom Brady's third touchdown of the day, putting Tampa Bay up 28-10. Whitehead left with a shoulder injury on Green Bay's next possession.

Jones remained on the sideline and is listed as questionable to return. The Bucs announced Whitehead is out, leaving them with a pair of backup safeties in the lineup. Rookie Antoine Winfield, Jr., is inactive with an ankle injury.
