Saine misses practice again, Packers shorthanded at RB

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

The Packers might have only two healthy running backs for Sunday's game at Kansas City. They have only four backs on their roster, and one, halfback James Starks, is unlikely to play this week because of knee and ankle injuries. Another, rookie Brandon Saine, sustained a concussion last week against Oakland, and though the early prognosis gave him a good chance to play this week, he missed practice today for the second straight day. If he's unable to practice Friday, chances are he wouldn't play Sunday. That might be the reason the Packers signed fullback Jon Hoese to their practice squad today. If Starks and Saine don't play, the Packers' only running backs are Ryan Grant and John Kuhn, so they could promote Hoese from their practice squad if needed to provide a third back. Others who didn't practice today: LT Chad Clifton (hamstring, back), DL Ryan Pickett (concussion), WR Greg Jennings (knee) and LB Desmond Bishop (calf).
