Greg Jennings, James Starks Both Out Thursday As Packers Prepare For Lions

The Green Bay Packers have already clinched homefield advantage throughout the NFL Playoffs, but the team still has one final game to play when NFC North rivals Detroit Lions head to Wisconsin for the final game of the regular season. The Lions still have seeding to play for, however, and could get some help from the Packers injury report.

The Packers have already listed top wide receiver Greg Jennings out for the weekend, but starting running back James Starks missed his second straight practice as well according to the team's injury report on Thursday. Starks will likely be able to play this weekend, but it's unlikely the Packers will allow him to do too much as they attempt to keep him healthy for the postseason.

Rookie wide receiver was the only other Packers player that was unable to practice on Thursday. Offensive linemen Brian Bulaga and Chad Clifton were listed as limited along with defensive starters Clay Matthews, Jermichael Finley, Ryan Pickett and Charles Woodson.
