Report: Starks Possibly Out For Season With Knee Injury

Leave it to Wilde to get me to turn off Dark Knight Rises in order to bring all you fine people the latest Packers news.

From ESPNMilwaukee:

When Mike McCarthy said on Monday that the medical staff was still evaluating a handful of players – and thus he was unable to deliver a full injury report – apparently one of the players the Packers coach was talking about was the oft-injured running back.

According to an NFL source, Starks was later diagnosed with a knee injury, suffered during Sunday’s 23-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, and it’s serious enough that he might not play again the rest of the season. The source said the Packers are mulling placing Starks on injured reserve.

“It’s not an ACL,” the source said, adding that the early evaluation was that the injury would not require surgery. But with only four regular-season games left, the Packers likely will want Starks’ roster spot for a healthy player for the stretch run.

The Packers will no doubt lean on Alex Green, John Kuhn, Johnny White and recently-promoted-from-the-practice-squad DuJuan Harris for the time being. Expect the team to have a number of running backs in for a workout at some point, if they haven't already. And yes, Ryan Grant could possibly be one of them.

Just about everything that could go well in terms of NFC opponents losing and the Pack winning occured this week. So of course the universe has to even things out. OK Fates, do your thing, but leave Bart Starr alone.

Tired of all these injuries every year. We need a new teaing staff point blank. I can understand some of the injuries but this is way too many

Not sure that even the worlds best training staff can prevent knee injuries.

Time for Alex Green to step up or trade carries with Johnny White or DuJuan Harris. The rabbit hole has closed.

Ryan Grant will be in Green Bay on Wednesday and should be on the roster by the end of the week.

Good call Randall.

Can PFF or CHT assemble numbers on lost games by players on the fifty-three man roster? Interested in seeing how GB compares to other teams. If this measurement places them among the leaders (worst), which I expect is the case, it would be a good story on why this is happening.

Huge blow, Starks breaks tackles. Green folds to easy when hit...this sucks bad....$hit

Send him to Adrian Peterson's doctor.

Wow. Just wow. He was supposed to play the roll of "healthy player for the stretch run." This really hurts.

Seriously, Ryan Grant? Would love an RG in his prime but isn't he used up? Maybe he will surprise. TT might as well call Ahman Green and Samkon Gado while he's at it.

It's time to buy Randall Cobb some bigger pads.

Anyone know of an up-and-coming back just waiting on someone else's practice squad?

Aaaaaaaaaarg

Why cant we ever find or even stumble on a Roger Craig type back durable hard runner who can catch a screen pass?

Tundraboy's picture

maybe we will catch a break this year.

Well at least he is fresh and another year removed from that bad ankle injury.

Do the Packers employ a biomechanical specialist similar to that which major league pitchers use?

It seems that there should be a reason certain players get repeatedly injured. It's either training & recovery methods, posture, or luck.
