GREEN BAY, Wis., Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Operation 'Replace Eddie Lacy and James Starks' isn't going so well for the Green Bay Packers.

On Monday, the Packers waived Knile Davis, just two weeks after signing the former Kansas City Chiefs backup. Davis, 25, has just three yards on six carries and 18 yards on four receptions this season. The Packers acquired Davis from the Chiefs on Oct. 18 for a conditional late-round pick.

Davis could return to the Chiefs, who are now in need of running back help after former back-up-turned-starter Spencer Ware left Sunday's win against the Indianapolis Colts with a concussion. Davis gained four yards on three carries in the Packers' loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

The Packers don't owe the Chiefs anything for Davis because the team hit its window for releasing him at no cost. Now the Packers will look at an eclectic group including: rookie Don Jackson, Ty Montgomery, and, eventually, Starks to replace its young runner. For fantasy football purposes, this is a backfield to avoid, unless someone emerges in the coming weeks.
