In the aftermath of a disappointing 24-22 loss to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, the Green Bay Packers are actively seeking reinforcements for their running back corps. With starting running back Aaron Jones sidelined due to a knee injury, AJ Dillon has taken the lead but hasn’t replicated Jones’ numbers.
Facing offensive challenges, the Packers showcased interest in two running backs—Gerrid Doaks and Hassan Hall. Doaks, an All-AAC honoree from the Cincinnati Bearcats in 2020, has previous experience with the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans. Hall, an undrafted rookie free agent who earned All-ACC honors with Louisville in 2019, has had stints with the Clemson Browns, Arizona Cardinals, and New York Giants since the 2023 NFL Draft.
The Packers worked out both running backs, according to Aaron Wilson with KPRC, but as of the latest update, neither Doaks nor Hall has been signed.
The injuries to key offensive players, coupled with the need for a dynamic running game, prompted the Packers to explore potential additions to their running back roster.
