This is the first we’ve heard of running back James Starks since he got released by the Green Bay Packers earlier this week.
Starks hadn’t played since suffering a concussion in a car accident in mid-December, when his SUV was hit by a semi.
Before that, his season was limited by a knee injury, which he had surgery on in October.
When Starks was healthy, he wasn’t effective. On the season, he ran for just 145 yards on 63 carries. That’s a 2.3 yards per carry average and that doesn’t hold up on any level.
As with most players in this situation, Starks has suggested that he’ll come back. While we love James Starks, that probably isn’t realistic.
Even though he was cut, Starks still puts out a positive message. Guy was a class act best of luck to him going forward.
Thanks for the memories Starks. We probably don’t win super bowl 45 without him.
