James Starks won't play for Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- We hate to bring the James Starks cult this bit of bad news: Starks is inactive for the Green Bay Packers' game against the New York Giants, the second consecutive game the rookie running back will miss.

As with last Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, the Packers will use Brandon Jackson, John Kuhn and Dimitri Nance as their primary runners.

One other bit of pregame news for the Packers: Robert Francois will start at outside linebacker for the injured Frank Zombo. Erik Walden started at that spot against the Patriots.
