Green Bay Packers running back James Starks was taken off the field on a cart in today’s game against the New York Giants. Starks has an ankle injury. It is being reported that his return to the game is questionable.
Describing his return as questionable is probably a bit charitable considering he was removed from the field on a cart and taken to the Green Bay locker room.
Starks leads Green Bay with 560 rushing yards on 124 attempts, prior to today’s game. He also has one rushing touchdown. Green Bay does not rely on their running backs very much with Aaron Rodgers and bevvy of receiving weapons, but their running backs do play a role in the offense nonetheless.
Starks leaves the game having rushed for five yards on three carries. At the two minute warning, New York was leading by a narrow 17-14 margin, with Green Bay in possession of the ball.
