The incident visibly moved players and coaches from both teams.
"One minute you're trying to tackle a guy, the next minute you're praying for him," Green Bay safety Marques Anderson said after the game.
Better news came Tuesday when hospital personnel informed the Chiefs that Jones had regained feeling in his extremities, the team announced.
Jones, in his fourth season with the Chiefs, is expected to remain hospitalized through Wednesday.
"I'm pleased to report that Willie has feeling in all of his limbs and seems to be on the cautious road to recovery," said Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson who, along with team physician, Dr. Jon Browne, remained in Canton after last night's game with the Packers to determine the injured player's condition, according to a Chiefs' news release.
" We appreciate all the thoughts and kind messages we received and I'm sure Willie does too," Peterson said.
Jones' season was ended by a neck injury last season. There has been no word on whether the two injuries are related.
