James Starks injury: Packers RB questionable after hurting knee

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Already missing Eddie Lacy, Green Bay is down to their last active running back against the Bengals.

Having already lost tight end Jermichael Finley to a head injury, it seems as though the Green Bay Packers may now have to carry on against the Cincinnati Bengals without running back James Starks. Starks left the game with an knee injury early in the third quarter and his return is questionable, according to the team.

Starting halfback Eddie Lacy did not suit up for the Packers after suffering a concussion in Week 2, meaning rookie Johnathan Franklin is the only remaining active back on-hand for Green Bay. A fourth-round selection out of UCLA, Franklin hasn't wasted time making his presence felt. He rushed for a two-yard touchdown early in the second half and currently has 20 yards on four carries.

Starks had 55 yards on 14 carries before being forced out. He was impressive filling in after Lacy's exit last week, going for 132 yards and a touchdown against the Washington Redskins.
