While the 6-foot-2, 218-pound James Starks saw his heaviest workload in two-plus NFL seasons during Sunday’s 24-20 win over Detroit, the Packers still plan to incorporate Alex Green into their backfield rotation.
After having three consecutive 20-carry performances last month, Green was relegated to no carries and only six offensive snaps on Sunday as the Packers decided to put the ball into the hands of Starks, who rushed 25 times for 74 yards.
“As far as our running game, we left a lot of production on the field was my conclusion after going through the tape and going through the grading sessions with the coaches,” coach Mike McCarthy said.
The Packers haven't been happy with either back, so that's why it will likely be a committee this week against the Giants. Green could play on third downs while Starks could get early down work, but neither back is really worth starting in your lineup outside of deeper leagues. Cedric Benson is a few weeks away from returning.
