Two underrated pieces to the Green Bay Packers offense could be out of action in Sunday's contest versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Per Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Post-Gazette, neither James Starks or Josh Sitton are likely to play.
McCarthy said Starks (ankle) worked out hard on Tuesday but didn’t have a positive report following a medical test today.
As for Sitton (knee), McCarthy said the Packers would take a wait-and-see approach, but team doctors didn’t sound positive about his chances of returning this week.
Here is the full injury report for the Packers on Wednesday:
