Jamaal Williams returned to the huddle, stayed on the field for the next snap, and even got a good block on a blitzing linebacker. But the Packers announced that he sustained an ankle injury.

Aaron Jones, who is suspended for the first two regular-season games but can participate in the preseason, has missed the past two exhibitions because of a hamstring injury.

Regardless, the Packers spent their weekend examining their running back depth chart. They placed tailback Akeem Judd on the reserve/retired list Saturday and signed tailback LeShun Daniels, a first-year player out of Iowa. On Sunday, they signed running back Bronson Hill.

Hill originally signed with the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted rookie out of Eastern Michigan in 2015. He has spent time with several NFL teams, including practice-squad stints with the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints, Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars. He played three games with the Jaguars in 2016 and two games for the Cardinals last season.

Williams wasn't included on the Packers ' first Week 3 injury report, so he may have picked up the issue Thursday. No matter how it happened, his ability to fit in some reps is somewhat encouraging. Ultimately, Friday's injury report will be telling for Williams ' availability Sunday against the Broncos.

He spent time last season on the Los Angeles Chargers' practice squad before signing with Washington, which promoted him to the active roster for four games. Daniels eventually was placed on injured reserve in late December with a hand injury.
