|In the category of “the NFL stands for Not For Long,” we present James Starks. One year after entering training camp atop the Packers’ depth chart at running back, he is in a dogfight to win a roster spot. And most don't expect him to make the cut. The Packers used second- and fourth-round picks on Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin, and DuJuan Harris may have been the team's most effective running back in 2012, albeit in limited playing time. Alex Green also returns, and the Packers view him as a potential playmaker. Meanwhile, Starks hasn't been able to replicate the string of solid games he put together as a rookie when he helped Green Bay roll to a Super Bowl victory. After three injury-plagued seasons during which he hasn't always run with determination, Starks's Green Bay career will likely come to an end some time this summer.
| Lacy misses practice Wednesday -- Wed Dec 11 10:45 am --|
|The Packers were without rookie RB Eddie Lacy Wednesday at practice, but he was inside the Don Hutson Center working out with the strength and conditioning staff. There was no word yet on the probability of Lacy (ankle) playing this week. If he can't play, James Starks would get the bulk of the carries.

FF Today's Take: It's likely Lacy will see very limited practice time this week and if he sits on Sunday, James Starks would get the start against the Cowboys and be a worthy RB2.
