Packers' Starks a game-time decision for Sunday's Chiefs tilt

Green Bay running back James Starks returned to practice Friday for the first time this week and coach Mike McCarthy said the running back will be a game-time decision Sunday when the Packers face the Kansas City Chiefs.

Starks, who missed last Sunday's win over the Oakland Raiders with knee and ankle injuries, practiced on a limited basis and is listed as questionable for the Chiefs game. Packers running back Brandon Saine (concussion) also is listed as questionable and is a game-time decision.

McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, that Starks' situation mirrors the one he faced leading up to the Packers' Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Detroit Lions when he played sparingly, rushing for 19 yards on four carries.

"It's looking pretty good right now but I'll keep waiting," Starks told Sentinel. "It'll probably be another game-day right now but I feel good about it."

Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton (knee) is also questionable.
