I wondered this as well when I heard that they signed a RB to the roster.

Hopefully it's just a precaution, but last week showed that you need plenty of RBs on the active roster. With the hyper-caution about concussions, as well as the probable increase in leg injuries partially resulting from the emphasis on no hits to the head, a team can go from plenty of RBs to none in just a few plays. I'd even go so far as to cross-train several other position players as RBs at least minimally.

Just caught a blurb from Tyler Dunne last night and he said he expected Starks to miss 3-4 weeks. He didn't say, or at least I didn't catch, what he based it on.
Every team has fans that fans of other teams point to and say "all their fans are assholes" Don't be one of those fans.

Cut him.
There is no use for a player that spends most of his time in the rehab room.

At this point that is hard to argue. Having a guy on IR on a regular basis hurts our roster. Cutting Starks would open a roster spot, but could give us issues in our depth at RB if he isn't going to miss more than a couple weeks.

I like the guy, but I am tired of seeing him in the injury report every season.](*,)

He's typically only good for a handful of games consecutively. Slap him with the IR to return deal and gradually bring him back for the playoff push.

It's a shame that Starks can't stay healthy.
When he is (on the rare occasion) he has shown that he has talent.

I'm not as negative on Starks and the whole injury thing as I was previously. When it seemed like he was our only decent RB or whatever, then, yeah, it was a big deal when he was so disgustingly prone to injury. But now, with Lacy and Franklin, he can miss 3-4 weeks if that turns out to be true, then come in and play hard in mid-season, giving the others a little bit of a break or if one of them gets injured, and if he gets hurt again, no big deal - maybe he'd be back just in time for the late season run. Taking up a roster spot really isn't that big a deal, especially considering there are inactives out of the 53 each week anyway.

Starks can start.

And I don't mean, "if there's nobody better on the team." What I mean is, he can beat NFL defenses consistently.

But Lacy and Franklin are better.
