Green Bay Packers running back James Starks, wide receiver
Jordy Nelson and linebacker Clay Matthews were among the players missing from
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
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.
