James Starks, Graham Harrell on Packers’ roster bubble

Even though Starks had injury issues dating back to his days at the University of Buffalo and had averaged just 4.2 YPC on only 162 career carries in 2 years after going in the 6th round in 2010, the Packers were committed to him as the starter for most of the offseason.
