Packers list Eddie Lacy, James Starks as questionable

We know the Cowboys and Packers will square off at Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon, but we don’t know who will be in the backfield for the Packers when the game kicks off.

The team has listed running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks as questionable for the matchup of one-loss teams. Lacy hurt his ankle against the Giants last Sunday night and got in a week of limited practices.

That would seem to make him a likelier bet to be in the lineup this weekend than Starks, who has not practiced at all this week due to a knee injury and a death in his family that took him away from Green Bay. Fullback Aaron Ripkowski is the only other running back on the roster.

Cornerback Damarious Randall is also listed as questionable after missing last week with a groin injury. Cornerback Sam Shields remains out with a concussion.

    They can use Cobb and Montgomery some, but they need Lacy to be there for 30 plays at least.

    ESPN must be licking their chops waiting to report on this one.

    No matter what they get to pick one of their sparkly media favorite teams as the team to beat.

    Lacy will play. I’m not feeling too positive on the Pack in this game though. They haven’t really faced a good running game or oline yet so we will see if the run defense is as good as the numbers say.

    6 comments. 4 of them from Vikings fans. Get over it guys. Seriously. You were annoying the first 1,000 times. Now it’s just sad…

    Viking trolls have no pride. It is more important to them to be near the aura of the Packers than to enjoy the success of the Vikings. It isn’t sad, or funny. It’s their way of life.

    Time for one of your historic games, Aaron. You are the MAN…..

    You’d think that with as many comments as the viking fans trying to be clever or funny post on every Packer article on this site, at least some of them would have accomplished that by now. The law of averages alone would suggest that they should have accidentally stumbled upon something humorous, but… just crickets.

    You guys need to do better!! Try harder!! This is your obsession we’re talking about here!!!

    My Packer friends. Cant you just roll your eyes at my fellow V rubes like us true fans do?

  12. zerotrophiessince1961 says: Oct 14, 2016 7:35 PM

    Ninefingers –

    How have you dealt with Seaturd trolls over the years? It’s a little harder when your annoying little brother is in your division and you have to put up with him 2x a year.

  13. siuleno says: Oct 14, 2016 7:39 PM

    reminder: zero championships. you need 13 to even show up on our radar. go away.

  14. ninefingers9 says: Oct 14, 2016 8:11 PM

    Zero, im a Viking fan since 74. I love the banter and the history of smack talking between our teams. But Im a realist and until my team wins at least 1 SB, we will always be owned by our older brothers to the east. I hate the Pack, but thats the fun. Im a fan of the Vikings, but I am really a fan of the NFL. Now go find some cheese and suck on it! 😉

    maybe they are sick of the packer crap and preferential referee treatment

    about 9 of which were when there were 4 teams in the league, and moses had stone tablets

    No matter the era, the champion is the last team standing.

    You could make a case that the NFL Championships of the 40’s through the 1960’s were more difficult to attain than in the modern era. You had to win your division, and that was the only way to have a shot at the Championship (unless there was a tie and play-in game). There were no wildcards or anything of the sort to find another way in.

    There were only 2 qualifiers from the pool of 10-14 teams from that period that had a chance to win the championship, whereas there are now 12 that make the playoffs out of 32 teams. The road is longer for those 12 teams, as the only post-season game (unless there was a divisional tie) was the NFL Championship Game prior to the Super Bowl era. But the history of the NFL and the importance of it’s older championships is just as important and recognized as those of MLB, NBA, and the NHL.

    After blowing through the likes of the Pottstown Firebirds and the Decatur Staleys, the Packers were able to win one more game once the regular season ended nine times to claim their ‘NFL Championships. Hell, the Vikings won an NFL Championship after the ’69 season. But by then, the rules had changed so that after winning an ‘NFL Championship’ of which Packer fans are so proud, winning one more game was needed to be the champion. So the Vikings lone ‘NFL Championship’ has been forgotten. We’ll never know how many of those nine seasons would have ended in championships if the Packers had been required to win two or more games.
    So congratulations Packers for winning nine first round postseason game from 1920 through 1965.

    So Packer fans, continue to cling to those nine ‘NFL Championships’ if you wish, but you must acknowledge that the Vikings have one of them too.

    Those downplaying any Championships won many years ago must know the following,prior to the 1960’s the NFL did not have revenue sharing,which meant that small market teams like Green Bay had to compete with the big market teams like New York.Those big market teams had much more money to assemble their teams.Truth is the Packers nearly folded a couple times due to lack of funds.Before the 60’s it was truly David vs Goliath.Green Bay had to play against the big city teams like NY,Philly,Chicago,LA,St Louis,Detroit,and Baltimore.

    Packers with lacy and Starks will go down. This is a good team.

    You’re not leading by example, Frank. How is that being funny or original? Better go back to kissing up to rivals and being a traitor.

  23. bigdawgdaddy says: Oct 15, 2016 6:31 AM

    Put a box of donuts on the field along with 200 pizzas….Lacy will show up.

  24. nhpats says: Oct 15, 2016 9:00 AM

    Sorry Pack fans but the Vikings are now the team to beat in the NFC North…..and quite possibly the NFC in general.

  25. ariani1985 says: Oct 15, 2016 9:50 AM

    but, but, but I was told by the Packer trolls the each would have 2000 yards by now in this great offense! ready to eat crow fake stock holders?

  26. filthymcnasty3 says: Oct 15, 2016 9:55 AM

    I love each of our NFL record 13 World Championships equally.

    Better football.

    For better people.

  27. stellarperformance says: Oct 15, 2016 10:08 AM

    Frank is right. He’s a calm voice of reason. A title is a title and competition within any era was peer-level and tough and included the best of the best…….just like now. My grandfather played for the Duluth Eskimos. He could kick ass into his eighties.

    Plus, if the Vikings have a championship of-record, then the Packers have fifteen titles instead of thirteen…..using the same logic. You figure it out.

    You can really tell.

    All our championships make them angry.

  30. Wisconsin's Favorite Son Jeffrey Be Dahmed says: Oct 15, 2016 12:23 PM

    We’re all on the same team here, guys, so I’m really sorry about getting under your skin. But, you know, that’s what we do around here. It might help your own low self-esteem and poor self image if you tell us all again, Stella, how our Packers players have personally told you how they feel about me. That must really build you up in your own mind. Then you and Benedict Arnold can both kiss up to the Vikings some more.

  31. cheeseisfattening says: Oct 15, 2016 2:23 PM

    Just remind them how the fans failed to sell out a playoff game a few years back or that they are not a special team supported by fake stock and they use public tax money for support like everyone else and watch them go bat s crazy.

    There’s nothing that you could say that gets under anyone’s skin. You’re just not original or funny. Even your own Vikings’ fans have told you that.
