Description: Packers running back Johnathan Franklin's career is over due to a neck injury. He suffered the injury in Week 12 last season.
Insight: Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Franklin will "not be back with us," and Franklin went on Twitter later to announce he has been ruled out from playing in the NFL again. Franklin was a fourth-round pick last year and rushed for 103 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in Week 3 last year while Eddie Lacy was out with a concussion. However, he had just four rushing yards in his other 10 games.

Description: Green Bay rookie running back Johnathan Franklin has been placed on injured reserve due to a concussion.
Insight: Franklin had 103 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 with Eddie Lacy and James Starks out but carried the ball just six times after that. The Packers may bring in another running back or just have John Kuhn serve as the third-string RB behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks.

Description: Green Bay rookie running back Johnathan Franklin left Sunday's game against the Vikings with concussion-like symptoms.
Insight: Franklin produced a 100-yard day with Eddie Lacy and James Starks sidelined in Week 3 but has totaled just six carries since then. He isn't a fantasy option.

Description: Green Bay rookie Johnathan Franklin will have to return to his backup role with Eddie Lacy appearing to be healthy and ready for Week 5.
Insight: Franklin produced a 100-yard day with Lacy and James Starks sidelined and may have earned a slightly bigger part of the workload. It will be interesting to see how the work is divided.

Description: Green Bay rookie Johnathan Franklin rushed 13 times for 103 yards and catching three balls for 23 yards in a replacement role for James Starks.
Insight: If Eddie Lacy (concussion) returns after the bye week, both Starks and Franklin will have little to no fantasy value except as a handcuff.
