It doesn't look like the bye week was enough time for injured James Starks to heal his injured knee. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said on Wednesday that he's not expecting Starks back for at least 'a couple of weeks' according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Starks injured his knee early in the third quarter in the Packers Week 3 loss to Cincinnati. It's been an interesting season for Starks. The 27-year-old running back played sparingly in the Packers Week 1 loss to San Francisco but came back and ran for a career-high 132 yards in Green Bay's 38-20 Week 2 win over Washington.

Although the Packers won't have Starks they should have rookie running back Eddie Lacy back on Sunday when they face the Lions. Lacy missed the Bengals game with a concussion.

Besides Starks the Packers will also be without cornerback Casey Hayward. Hayward's dealing with a hamstring injury and McCarthy offered no timetable on his return. "Everyone is different I don't have an answer. Won't be ready this week" McCarthy said.
