It could have been a disaster for the Green Bay Packers this week at the running back position when they faced the Dallas Cowboys, as both Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee) were listed as questionable for the game.

However, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has said while Starks has been downgraded to out of the contest, Lacy is expected to play, meaning things won't be as bad as first thought for the Packers.

Yet, this means the team is now a little bit thin at the running back position, meaning others from other positions on the field will have to step up. Those players that have been given the call are wide receivers Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb.

When asked if he was training to play running back earlier this week via ESPN, Cobb said: "Possibly," while Montgomery said: "Honestly, I feel like we've always got to be ready. I know I'm giving you a generic answer, but we've always got to be ready because you never know what could happen."

Lacy is still expected to have the majority of the carries, while the fill-in backups are expected to be more situational and every now and then.

Montgomery doesn't have any experience at running back, while we have already see Cobb take carries for Green Bay before. He also played the position at college too at Kentucky, tallying up 1,313 yards from 228 carries.
