James Starks Returns, Damarious Randall Sits

James Starks practice

Running back James Starks practiced for the first time this week, on Thursday. It didn’t look all good for the Green Bay Packers though, as cornerback Damarious Randall was sidelined.

Starks is returning from a hip injury he suffered during his 112-yard performance against San Diego. The injury kept him in Green Bay during the bye week for rehab and kept him from practicing until today.

Randall’s absence is a surprise.

He has practiced both days this week and hasn’t appeared on the injury report.

It isn’t clear what the issue is.

Receiver Ty Montgomery also remained sidelined with an ankle injury. The Packers will give him until Saturday before they make a determination on his status for Sunday night.

    Wow does Lacy look Phat!!
    He is eating way right off the team

    If Eddie can accelerate that mass quickly, I have no complaints.
    If it begins to hurt his quickness, he will likely miss a lucrative contract after 2016.

    Looks like Lynch. I have no problem with that as long as he runs people over like Lynch. Mass can be just effective as speed.
    He just needs to find the hole and hit it downhill running people over. We really need him to pound Von Miller to keep him from flying at Rodgers.

    Actually that is factually false. Momentum benefits from weight but energy delivered values speed over mass. E=mv^2. If Eddie is moving at the same rate regardless of weight, he will benefit from being larger. Otherwise, only if the product of his velocity squared is less than the amount in mass, velocity is in fact more important.
    Mass will change how quickly he loses momentum, but again, that will depend on the initial energy and how he places it. This means I can understand if he’d rather be a .44 than a .22, but he does not want to lose speed, or it won’t matter if he leverages momentum.

    I’m not in anyway commenting on lacy, other than if he gains enough weight where it appears it will change his performance, I’m pretty sure someone will say something.

      Be careful. You might hurt yourself trying to throw some physics you learned in high school. First you got the equation for kinetic energy wrong. Forgot to dived by 2. Second momentum=MV and F=mass x acceleration. These are more important in determining outcome of collision. Notice how db’s running much faster get knocked over by much slower moving Gronkowski or Lynch. Get your physics straight and run calculation before trying to lecture Einstein.

      You also can’t interchange speed and velocity-v is a vector and thus has direction whereas s is directionless, i.e. a scalar.
      Mass affects all forms of acceleration, not just deceleration, thanks to inertia. Furthermore weight is not a measure of mass but one of force, so when Green Bay travels to Denver, Eddie will lose about a pound.

    Okay

    Real question.
    Is the Eddie Lacy weight thing really only a topic because of the LeVeon Bell losing weight thing?

    Personally he doesn’t look much bigger than before.

    The guy has been injured. He can’t run or work out on his ankle. Of course he’s going to get bigger. He’ll be leaner and meaner as the season goes on.
