James Starks Officially "Questionable" for Thursday

Chad Clifton has been ruled out for Sunday's game. Everyone else besides him and Starks have been listed as probable.

The Packers released their last injury report before Thursday's showdown with the Lions on Thanksgiving, and running back James Starks has officially been listed as questionable.

Mike McCarthy said during his press conference that Starks would be a game-time decision.

According to Ty Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, McCarthy is paraphrased as saying, "If Starks can go tomorrow, he's playing. We don't put players in that can only go so much."

Last week against the Buccaneers, the Packers kept defensive lineman Mike Neal's repetitions limited after coming back from a knee injury, seemingly going against the grain of what McCarthy said about Starks.

Thus, it will be interesting to see if Starks comes back whether he'll handle the same workload he did earlier in the season, or snaps will be split among him, Ryan Grant and possibly John Kuhn or Brandon Saine.

As was noted earlier in the week, tackle Chad Clifton has been ruled out for the Thanksgiving Day game.

Everyone else on the Packers' injury report is listed as probable including wide receiver Greg Jennings, linebacker Clay Matthews, offensive lineman Josh Sitton and Marshall Newhouse and linebackers Desmond Bishop and Frank Zombo.
