In the avalanche of transactions this Tuesday afternoon, a few were bound to slip through the cracks.
We mentioned that the Packers placed cornerback Al Harris on the PUP/reserve list, but neglected to follow up that former starting safety Atari Bigby and rookie running back James Starks were also placed on PUP, effectively taking them out of action until Week Six.
Bigby underwent ankle surgery early this month after apparently hurting himself during the team’s conditioning test. Starks, a sixth-round pick, has battled a hamstring injury since the Spring.
The Packers are now rather thin at running back and in the secondary, and figure to be watching the waiver wire closely for possible pickups at both positions.
