Mike McCarthy: Packers RB Eddie Lacy will be on IR for the season & so will Sam Shields.

Related players: James Starks, Christine Michael, Ty Montgomery

Fantasy Impact:

James Starks figures to be the lead back the rest of the way. He'll be backed up by Christine Michael and Ty Montgomery.

Packers WR Ty Montgomery (illness) took full practice reps again Friday. Montgomery took a backseat to James Starks and his overall involvement in the Packer offense is now in question. His current injury is reportedly not related to his sickle cell trait; he was removed from the injury report so he should be fine for Week 11.

Packers WR Ty Montgomery (illness) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. Montgomery took a backseat to James Starks and his overall involvement in the Packer offense is now in question. His current injury is reportedly not related to his sickle cell trait, though it’s a good sign that he’s back at practice.

Packers claim RB Christine Michael off waivers

Packers have claimed RB Christine Michael off waivers, source says.

Related players: James Starks, Ty Montgomery

Fantasy Impact:

The move makes sense, given the Packers' situation at running back. Michael owners have reason to hold onto him to see how things shake out in Green Bay, but it appears that the team feels that James Starks is its best option to run the ball given the fact that they fed him 10 touches in his first game back. This is one of the best possible landing spots for Michael, who ran well early in the season (5.16 YPC in the first three games). Over the last six games he has averaged just 3.29 YPC.

Packers RB James Starks (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 10. Starks might return this week. Once healthy, he should form a committee with Ty Montgomery, though we believe Montgomery will lead this backfield in scoring. It doesn’t look like he’s poised for a big workload this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Cobb will play in Week 9 despite a hamstring issue. He likely isn't at 100-percent so comes with some risks. Montgomery will fully expected to play after missing last week.

Packers RB James Starks (knee, out) took limited practice reps again Friday and is out for Week 9. Look for Ty Montgomery and Don Jackson to see most of the touches out of the Green Bay backfield. Montgomery is a great play against the Colts.

Packers RB James Starks (knee) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Starks could return this week, but don’t expect a big workload in his first game back.

Packers RB James Starks (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Starks is working his way back. The Packers released Knile Davis this week, which some folks took as a sign that Starks was getting closer to a return. He’s a worthwhile stash with Eddie Lacy out for a while.

Packers release RB Knile Davis

The Green Bay Packers have released RB Knile Davis. The transaction was announced Monday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Related players: Don Jackson, James Starks, Aaron Ripkowski

Fantasy Impact:

So much for Davis taking on a big role in the Packers running game. With Eddie Lacy and James Starks out of commission right now and Ty Montgomery injured last week, Don Jackson and Aaron Ripkowski are the only backs left at the moment. The Pack could make another move for a back before the deadline. Ripkowski had six carries last week and Jackson four, and the two combined for just 44 yards. As for Davis, it's possible he lands back in KC with more issues for Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware suffering a concussion.
