Packers Activate RB Starks, Release LB Francois
The Green Bay Packers have activated RB James Starks from the physically unable to perform list and released LB Robert Francois. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
Starks, who was selected by the Packers in the sixth round (193rd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft out of the University at Buffalo, has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since August. He finished his career at Buffalo as the school’s all-time rushing leader with 3,140 yards in three seasons.
Francois (fran-SWAH) appeared in three games for the Packers this season.
The Packers also released S Michael Greco (GRECK-oh) from the practice squad.
