The Green Bay Packers will have a tall order on Sunday, and they may be severely shorthanded for that challenge.
The Packers have listed both Eddie Lacy and James Starks as questionable for Sunday's home game against the Dallas Cowboys. Lacy is dealing with an ankle injury suffered against the New York Giants last Sunday and has been a limited participant in this week's practices.
Starks's situation seems even more dire, as he has not practiced at all this week due to a knee ailment, as well as a death in his family that took him away from Green Bay.
With both Packers' running backs on the mend, the team may be forced to turn to fullback Aaron Ripkowski, as he is the only other running back on the team's roster.
The Packers also listed cornerback Damarious Randall as questionable for Sunday's game, and cornerback Sam Shields has already been ruled out with a concussion.
The Packers offense has left much to be desired this season and injuries to both running backs could prove problematic for this battle of 4-1 teams.
