Injury notes from Cleveland game
By Brian E Murphy
~Coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers had three injuries of unknown severity in Saturday night’s exhibition opener against Cleveland.
Tight end Andrew Quarless injured his groin, running back James Starks his ankle and tight end Tom Crabtree his ribs.
As always, McCarthy wasn’t sure of the severity of any of those type of injuries the night of the game.
“Tomorrow’s evaluation will always tell the story,” McCarthy said, “particularly on those fatigue injuries.”
Starks rolled his ankle but said after the game he had “no swelling” and wasn’t walking with any kind of limp. That’s a relief of contrast compared to Ryan Grant’s ankle injury in last year’s real opener in Philadelphia where it appeared somewhat minor initially by Ryan’s reaction, but it turned out to be a full season-ending injury.
