Jones, who scored four touchdowns during Green Bay’s 35-17 win over the Lions at Lambeau Field on Monday, revealed after the game that a necklace he had been wearing in honor of his late father had been lost.

However, Jones tweeted on Tuesday that the pendant – in the shape of a football, with some of his father’s ashes inside – had been found by trainer Bryan Engel.

“Found at 1:45am. Thank you to our trainer Bryan ‘Flea’ Engel I’m forever grateful,” wrote Jones, whose father Alvin died in April after contracting COVID-19.

Monday’s victory over the Lions was the first time Jones had played a game at Lambeau field without his father in attendance.

Jones finished the game with 115 total yards including 67 rushing yards and 48 receiving enroute to four touchdowns.
