RB James Starks returns to practice

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 23, 2013 – 4:17 pm

Amidst all the injuries the Packers are dealing with, they’re actually starting to get healthier at some spots, which “encouraged” Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

RB James Starks

RB James Starks

RB James Starks (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday and was listed as a full participant, though it was a non-padded practice. Starks has been out since injuring his knee in the first half at Cincinnati in Week 3.

“James Starks looked good,” McCarthy said. “Looks to be back. We didn’t do a whole lot of team (drills) today. We were in helmets. Did a lot of jog-through and a lot of teaching periods today. Based on the workload, I thought he looked fine.”

Also listed as full participants were three players with hamstring injuries — LB Brad Jones, CB Jarrett Bush and CB Casey Hayward.

McCarthy said Jones is being “eased” back into things, but this marks the second straight week Hayward has practiced on Wednesday and appears on track to work every day. Hayward has yet to play this season after missing all but three practices in training camp.

“When push came to shove, he was close last week,” McCarthy said. “It’s good for him to get his confidence back. I think he’ll be ready to go with a full week of work.”

McCarthy didn’t have anything new to report on TE Jermichael Finley, who is seeking opinions from multiple specialists regarding his neck injury and his future outlook. Finley remains in a local hospital but continues to improve.

“We’re going to wait until everything comes in,” McCarthy said, referring to the medical reports. “(Team physician) Pat McKenzie is collecting all the information, and we’ll do our due diligence. We will not be premature on anything, and we will do what’s in the best interest of Jermichael Finley. That’s where we are.”

    Great to hear we might be getting some players back to health. Very concerned about J-Mike.

    I know they’re still gathering information, but it really freaks me out that he’s still in the hospital.

    Ya he will be ready to go. MId season next year. He is just an accident waiting to happen

    J Mike is done for the year.

    I don’t think Finley will play again. I believe the report will come out saying that playing again will be too risky. Much like Nick Collins. He is done.

    Well, one of you has to be wrong.

    been a rough few week stretch for GB, man its getting hard to even watch, Matthews, Finley, Cobb, Bulaga, B.Jones, J.Jones, Heyward, Starks, Lacy, Perry, I guess u really do need about 60 players to make it thru the year. Hope they all are okay and back on field.

    Time will tell on all those injuries…Does anyone KNOW what the current status for return is on those players on the PUP list?

    Any word on whats happening with Matthews?

  10. By PackersAreAmericasTeam on Oct 24, 2013 | Reply

    Can Hawk do anything more to acknowledge that he is worthy of All Pro status this year?. Even the Hawk haters have to stand up and take notice of the fact that he is playing like the backer we drafted for.

    I hope all the guys get healthy soon. I hope Finley heals and will be able to play,
    but that’s just hoping. Easy on A.J. Hawk guys, how about that 3 sack game against Ravens? He has really stepped up this season. Show some love for A.J. I had lost faith in him last season, but he has improved even though he took a paycut. Unlike that purple lover Jennings and all the things he said about the Pack. That helmet he signed he is going to be sorry this weekend. Go Pack Go!!!

    From what we’ve heard about Finley, it was a contusion on the brain stem, right? Read that that would heal up and when it does, he’d be at no more of a risk of a reoccurring injury to the spine/brain stem than any other player. Of course, this is something that should be looked at carefully from many different angles and by many different physicians. We want J-Mike back, but only if he’s healthy. No one wants to see him hurt more than he was this past weekend.

    Glad to hear some of our guys are getting back to being healthy. We’ll be a force to be reckoned with come playoff time.

    I hope for one of two things: Starks get hurt again and MM realizes this guy is just an accident waiting to happen, or he stays healthy for the rest of the season, and finally can be depended on for more than just two games.
    The guy is worthless on the bench and has been on the bench more than on the field the past two years.
