    All I care about right now is the health of James Starks.
    Any updates?

    Also, I hope Jennings is okay, sounds like he is.

    McCarthy called Starks' knee the old "sprain", so I am very worried.

    It didn't look good to me when Aaron was signalling the medical guys to hurry in.

    This is from the Packers Twitter account:

    packers Green Bay Packers

    McCarthy: James Starks has a knee sprain. More information will be available in the morning after further testing.

    I'm very worried for him too. I was looking forward to seeing him play in the Lions game. Prayers for Starks!

    Thanks for the twitter update... seriously,... that looked bad from what I could tell,...they haven't showed that once in the replays. Probably just as well :(
    *remember I was streaming it...so it was hard to see, not like I want to see it over and over again.

    I don't think he will be playing on Thursday :( so it will make an interesting game. Glad we have Grant and OMG may Saine actually step up like Starks did last year?

    I wish Alex Green wasn't out for the season. This would of been a good test for him.

    The one guy they brought up from the practice squad may see some real time. I'm pretty stoked to see him play. Our running game is mild at best.

    Don't sweat it ppl. Ford Field is turf meaning our Rodgers is gonna let it rip!! An OK run game is all we need at best.

    Lets hope Starks is ok, we will know tomorrow. but we still have RG. Don't forget he is still a starting back and given enough runs will be able to do the job just fine.

    We're going to need him for the Lions game. Starks is our best RB, and keeps the ground game moving. Without him, it will be tough.

    Starks has torn an ACL before right? Isn't that how he missed his last season at Buffalo?

    No when he was at Buffalo it was his shoulder, his rotator cuff I think.

    I can't imagine a sprained knee would be ready to go in 4 days.

    True, but just because McCarthy said after the game that it's a sprain doesn't necessarily mean that it's a sprain, either. Every single knee related issue is first reported as a sprain.

    I guess it would depend on the severity of it. If it's non"serious," say a mild sprain, that's actually good news. I still wouldn't expect him to play on Thursday, even with a mild injury. It will hurt our run game against the Lions, but we are going to need Starks much more down the stretch and into the playoffs than the Lions game alone. I say sit him as a precaution, if the game was Sunday as opposed to Thursday, maybe, but I would rather not risk aggravating the injury. Lets have the wisdom to think ahead rather than risk our best RB because we just want to beat the Lions. Starks is precious!

    Yeah, it would have been a good test for him, but I like Saine. He had some really nice runs behind an OL that mostly didn't even make the team. Can't wait to see what the kid can do behind a real NFL offensive line.

    He needs to be able to block for Mr. Rodgers also.

    Yeah, wasn't Cutler's injury in the NFCCG a "sprain/"
