The Green Bay Packers have ruled out wide receiver Jordy
Nelson, linebacker Clay Matthews, running back James Starks and safety Charles
Woodson for Sunday night’s game against the Detroit Lions, reports Tim
Twentyman of Lions.com.
LB Clay Matthews, WR Jordy Nelson, RB James Starks, DB Charles Woodson and DE C.J. Wilson all out Sunday for Packers

Starks suffered a knee injury last weekend against the
Minnesota Vikings. After his knee flared up on him Monday it was checked out by
doctors who didn’t like what they saw. Coach Mike McCarthy has since come out
and said that he expects Starks to miss multiple weeks due to the injury.
Matthews and Nelson continue to be sidelined due to
hamstring injuries. Woodson is attempting to return from a broken collarbone,
and he’ll be out another week due to the injury.
Beyond Nelson, Matthews, Starks and Woodson, the Packers
have also ruled defensive lineman C.J. Wilson out due to a knee injury.
