Starks suffered a knee injury last weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. After his knee flared up on him Monday it was checked out by doctors who didn’t like what they saw. Coach Mike McCarthy has since come out and said that he expects Starks to miss multiple weeks due to the injury.
Matthews and Nelson continue to be sidelined due to hamstring injuries. Woodson is attempting to return from a broken collarbone, and he’ll be out another week due to the injury.
Beyond Nelson, Matthews, Starks and Woodson, the Packers have also ruled defensive lineman C.J. Wilson out due to a knee injury.
