NASHVILLE -- Two weeks ago, the Packers didn't have Ty Montgomery or James Starks. Last week, Montgomery was on a snap count due to the illness that forced him to miss a game.
On Sunday in Nashville against the Titans, the Packers will have both Montgomery and Starks as options in the offensive backfield, a unit that is finally starting to get closer to full health.
Eddie Lacy remains on injured reserve and may or may not be done for the season, but Montgomery averaged 9.1 yards per touch last week (91 yards on 10 combined rushes and receptions) and likely would have gotten more work if fully cleared.
Meanwhile, Starks was off to a slow start before missing the last four games due to knee surgery, but he gives the Packers the best option they've had in over a month for a goal-to-go ball-carrier. Green Bay's only rushing touchdowns all season have been scored by QB Aaron Rodgers.
RB Don Jackson is inactive, another potential sign the Packers feel pretty good about Starks' health.
In the North: If things go Green Bay's way, the NFC North could be in a three-way tie by the end of Sunday.
If the Packers can beat the Titans, and if the Redskins beat the Vikings, three teams -- Green Bay, Minnesota and Detroit (on a bye this week) -- will be 5-4. Should the Vikings win, the Packers would need to win to pull into a second-place tie with the Lions and stay just one game back.
Weather update: It's expected to be a perfect day for football in Nashville. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 60s with no chance of rain and minimal wind.
On the road: Sunday begins a three-game road swing for the Packers, their first stretch of three straight road games since 2012. For more on that and what it means to the team, check out this week's "One Last Look."
