James Starks rushes for career-high 132 yards, Eddie Lacy suffers concussion

A helmet-to-helmet hit from Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather on his only carry of the day forced Packers rookie Eddie Lacy (concussion) to leave the game early.

Lacy's departure paved the way for James Starks to do something that no other Packers running back has done since the 2010 season — rush for 100 yards.

Starks carried the ball 20 times for a career-high 132 yards and a touchdown and became the team's first 100-yard rusher in 45 games.

Depending on Lacy's status for Week 3 against the Bengals (and especially for Lacy owners), Starks could be worth adding in fantasy leagues. Since the Packers have their bye in Week 4, there is even more reason for the Packers to play it safe with their rookie rusher.
