Starks (concussion) has been waived by the Packers with a non-football-injury designation, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Starks was only able to take the field for nine games this season, ending the year on concussion protocol. The 30-year-old running back rushed for a measly 145 yards on 63 carries while recording in 19 receptions for 134 yards and two touchdowns in those nine contests. Starks' role on offense quickly diminished due to injuries and the emergence of Ty Montgomery as the new quick-paced, pass-catching target out of the backfield. The veteran now heads into free agency after spending the past seven seasons in Green Bay, the only place he has called home over his NFL career. It remains unseen how much Starks has left in the tank, especially when you factor in his injury plagued 2016 campaign, but he could find his way onto a team in need of a third-down back.

Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's playoff game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Starks has been sidelined entirely since suffering a concussion during a Dec. 12 car accident. At this point, it appears unlikely he'll play again this season, even if the Packers advance beyond Sunday's game.

Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's playoff game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Starks still hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion during a Dec. 12 car accident. As a result, him remaining out of contention to play is no surprise, but it's worth wondering whether he'll be available should the Packers advance beyond Sunday's contest.

Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Starks hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion after being involved in a car accident Dec. 12. With him slated to miss a third straight game, Christine Michael will once again serve as Ty Montgomery's only backup at tailback, although fullback Aaron Ripkowski has proven capable of filling snaps when needed.

Starks (concussion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Starks was unable to practice this week, which will prevent him from playing for the second straight game Saturday. His absence will leave Christine Michael as Ty Montgomery's primary backup versus Minnesota.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Starks remains in the league's concussion protocol.

EDGE Analysis

Starks has still not been cleared of concussion symptoms over a week after he was involved in a minor car accident, so he will not be able to practice Wednesday. It will be a stretch for him to play in Week 16 if he is unable to practice Thursday, but even if he is able to make it back this week, his role would be minimal behind Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael.

Starks (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Starks did not practice all week after suffering a head injury in a minor car accident Monday, and he will not be able to take the field Sunday. Starks' absence will leave the Packers with just Ty Montgomery, and presumably Christine Michael (illness), in the backfield for Week 15.

Starks (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Starks remains in the league's concussion protocol after being involved in a car accident earlier this week. Unless he's cleared over the weekend, which his doubtful tag suggests is unlikely, Starks won't be able to play in Week 15. With both Christine Michael (illness) and Aaron Ripkowski (back) listed as questionable as well, Green Bay's banged-up backfield could result in more carries for Ty Montgomery.

Starks remains in the league's concussion protocol as of Friday morning.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Starks is making progress in his recovery, but it appears Starks will not practice Friday for the third day in a row, which could make it tough for him to play in Week 15 against the Bears even if he is cleared from the protocol prior to Sunday. The Packers will provide another update on Starks' status when they release their final injury report of the week sometime Friday afternoon.

Starks is in the NFL's concussion protocol, as the result of a car accident he was involved in Monday, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Starks sustained a concussion in the accident, coach Mike McCarthy relayed that the running back was "OK" otherwise. Starks must now clear several hurdles in the concussion protocol, notably clearance from an independent neurologist, in order to gain clearance to play Sunday against the Bears. If Starks ends up out or limited this weekend, Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael would be in line to head the Packers' Week 15 rushing attack.
