GREEN BAY - Damarious Randall doesn’t believe he did further damage to a groin injury that has lingered since the bye week, but the Green Bay Packers cornerback was unable to finish Sunday’s game.

Randall, listed as questionable with a groin injury this week, exited after tackling Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams early in the second quarter. He did not return.

The Packers were already without top cornerback Sam Shields (concussion) and fellow second-year corner Quinten Rollins (groin). So Randall’s departure meant the Packers played most of Sunday’s 30-16 loss without their three top corners.

“I felt like I had a good break on the ball,” Randall said, “and when I went to tackle him, I just felt something. I just felt like I can’t keep on playing like this, because I don’t want to reinjure it. … We’ll see how it feels tomorrow, and see where it goes from there. I was trying to be out there with my team, and I just wasn’t able to keep on going.”

Right tackle Bryan Bulaga injured his knee late in Sunday’s game. Receiver Davante Adams was evaluated for a concussion.

On Saturday, running back James Starks was ruled out with a knee injury. Starks reportedly underwent surgery to clean out the knee and was expected to miss a few weeks. and follow him on Twitter @ByRyanWood
