The Green Bay Packers can't keep a healthy running back. Alex Green missed practice Wednesday due to concussion symptoms, the team reported.

Coach Mike McCarthy said the symptoms were discovered after the game last week, but he expects Green to be available Sunday. The Packers would be without their top three running backs if Green cannot go. Cedric Benson is out for the year and James Starks is done for the regular season. Ryan Grant was brought back early this month. The Packers would be down to Grant, the encouraging DuJuan Harris and fullback John Kuhn.

It's never a positive to be shorthanded, but the Packers have already clinched the NFC North and will be just fine against the Titans without Green.
