Found December 06, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
Green Bay Packers running back James Starks, wide receiver Jordy Nelson and linebacker Clay Matthews were among the players missing from practice yesterday. Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that Starks’ knee injury will keep him out for multiple weeks. It was reported Tuesday that the running back could potentially be sidelined for the season due to the knee injury he sustained last weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. Starks apparently felt the knee flare up on Monday and doctors didn’t like what they saw after examining it. McCarthy said that Nelson and Matthews, who are each recovering from hamstring injuries, were both making progress, but he wouldn’t offer his expectations on either this weekend. Beyond Starks, Nelson and Matthews, offensive lineman T.J. Lang and defensive linemen Mike Neal and C.J. Wilson also didn’t practice Wednesday. Green Bay did offer good news regarding their secondary, as both safety Charles Woodson and cornerback Sam Shields returned to practice Wednesday. Both players were limited participants.
