GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Injured Green Bay Packers running back James Starks may be able to play Thursday at Detroit.

Coach Mike McCarthy said the decision would be made before the game. Starks, the team's top rusher, was listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in a short walk-through session Wednesday.

Starks suffered a sprained knee and an ankle injury in the final minutes of the win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Receiver Greg Jennings, who sustained a bruised knee Sunday, is listed as probable to play against the Lions. So were linebackers Clay Matthews (ankle), Desmond Bishop (calf) and Frank Zombo (hamstring), left tackle Marshall Newhouse (knee) and right guard Josh Sitton (knee).
