James Starks could be back for playoffs

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 20, 2012 – 2:13 pm

Mike McCarthy said on Thursday that the plan is to get RB James Starks back from his knee injury for the playoffs, and Starks told reporters that all is going well with his rehab.

“I’m doing well right now, ahead of schedule,” Starks said. “All the swelling and everything is gone, so that’s a positive. I just have to keep getting it stronger so I can cut how I want to and not be slowed down in any way.”

Starks has been out since sustaining a bone bruise on his knee late in the victory over Minnesota three weeks ago. The Packers did not place him on injured reserve with the hope that he could return for the playoffs, and that now appears a distinct possibility.

“That’s what the medical staff is telling me,” McCarthy said.

The knee problem is the second injury this season for Starks, who had a bad bout with turf toe in the preseason that kept him inactive for the first five games of the regular season. Prior to the knee injury, Starks had rushed for a combined 236 yards over the four-game stretch that culminated in the Minnesota game on Dec. 2.
