It’s been a tough season for Green Bay Packers running back James Starks.
More recently, Starks has been the target of Packers’ fans’ ire for his lack of production: he’s averaging just 2.3 yards per carry this season, by far the worst of his career and the worst of any back with 60 or more carries this season. He totaled a whopping 4 yards on six carries in Green Bay’s last two games, with Christine Michael and Ty Montgomery getting the bulk of the carries in recent weeks.
And on Monday, Starks was in a car accident.
Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Thursday that Starks is in the concussion protocol because of the accident, though he’s apparently OK otherwise. He did not practice on Wednesday and it is unknown at this time whether Starks will be available for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
