Happy Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen. Before we pass along some of the best writing and little news snippets from today, I figure we should get the big story out of the way. James Starks picked up a knee injury, and at this point, it is expected that he will miss the rest of the regular season. The Packers have reportedly signed Ryan Grant to replace him. You can read all about it right here.

In other news, Mason Crosby is still the Packers' kicker, Bart Starr's dealing with a health issue, and the NFC isn't that good.
