The Green Bay Packers lost running back and 2013 draft pick Eddie Lacy Sunday to a concussion. That concussion kept him out for the remainder of the game and James Starks filled in for him.

From the Green Bay Press-Gazette:

The Packers didn’t know the full extent of Lacy’s concussion, caused by a collision with Washington safety Brandon Meriweather when he appeared to lead with the crown of his helmet at the end of a 10-yard carry.

If you didn’t see the hit, here you go:

Starks might have managed to wrestle away the starting position from Lacy even when he is cleared to play. Starks became the first Packers running back to gain over 100 yards in a regular season game in three years once he got on the field. Starks carried the ball 20 times for 132 yards and a touchdown.
