Green Bay Packers running back James Starks was held out of Wednesday’s practice because of a concussion.
We found that curious, since he barely played last week against the Seattle Seahawks. Starks, who has been terribly unproductive this season, played just seven snaps and had two carries for three yards.
It turns out, the concussion came from a car accident Starks got in on Monday.
There were no other injuries and Starks is reportedly fine. However, he is in concussion protocol, so there’s some doubt that he’ll be available for the Chicago Bears this weekend.
Unfortunately for Starks, it probably doesn’t matter one way or the other. He’s rushed 63 times this season for just 145 yards, which is an awful 2.3 yards per carry. The Packers finally appear content to go with the one-two punch of Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael.
