GREEN BAY, Wis. — With star wide receiver Greg Jennings out for a few weeks with a sprained left knee, now might be the time for the Green Bay Packers to rediscover James Jones.

As part of what might be the deepest and most talented group of wide receivers in the NFL, Jones has been tough to spot at times this season. His overall numbers are OK — 26 catches for 479 yards with five touchdowns — but perhaps not quite what he expected when he re-signed with Green Bay in the offseason.

Jones acknowledges that he sometimes finds himself fighting off frustration. But he knows the minute he starts sulking, it will hurt his chances of making the most of any offensive opportunities that come his way.
