Starks' knee injury apparently too severe; RB will now miss Lions game

Today, Bleacher Report and multiple other sources reported that Packers backup RB James Starks, who injured his knee in Week 3, will miss this weekend's game against the Detroit Lions. Starks was originally listed as questionable for the game at Lambeau, but now it is obvious that that information was incorrect. 

While I wish Starks would play this weekend, I don't think him being out is that big of a deal. Lacy and Franklin will likely still be available, and even if they were both out as well I still wouldn't be too concerned. The Packers are a passing team, and Starks has never been that good. So him being out is fine with me. Let him get healthy.
