GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers have activated rookie running back James Starks from the physically unable to perform list.
Starks is a sixth-round draft pick out of Buffalo who has not played in a game since his junior year in college. Starks missed his senior season because of a shoulder injury and has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since August.
Starks finished his career at Buffalo as the school's all-time rushing leader with 3,140 yards in three seasons.
The team has released linebacker Robert Francois, and released safety Michael Greco from the practice squad.
