Topic - James Starks
The Packers have formally announced the re-signing of backup running back James Starks, keeping their formidable backfield intact.
The numbers are not pretty anywhere on the defensive side of the field for the Washington Redskins. That has been a consistent theme through the first two weeks of the season.
If any more Green Bay receivers go down, the Packers could always use Morgan Burnett.
James Starks had 18 carries for 73 yards against the San Francisco 49ers and his coaches didn't cite him for any major mistakes in pass protection. He even remembered to thank his offensive linemen.
"Even when I was out, I was in the playbook a lot more than probably the other guys," Starks said. "They were probably tired and drained out. I had a little extra time to study the playbook and get in there and learn concepts a lot more. I feel like I'm pretty much catching up. It doesn't feel like I'm far behind at all."
"We've got great backs," Starks said. "Whatever is asked of me, that's what I'm going to do. I'm up for any challenge, just as the other backs are. If you put us in the right situation, we'll all succeed."
