In addition to two separate venues playing host to the event, there will be a total of nine featured games for viewers on-site and at home to watch.Theres so much to watch and follow that weve compiled an extensive guide to the games and names you need to keep tabs on. First well preview the four games wrapping up on Saturday, and then well dive into the games whose finals comprise the main event onstage at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.Saturday finalsPokken TournamentThe Pokémon craze will reach Evo this year with an incredible 1,180 entrants for the new Pokémon-meets-Tekken fighting game, which may be the weekends biggest culture shock for traditional fighting game fans. That said, these are the favorites for the top prize: Tevin TeeJay Stokes, Circa eSports Christian Suicune Master Patierno, and Panda Globals Steven Coach Steve Delgado. But, with such a new game, its certainly possible to see a shakeup in the top eight.Tekken 7: Fated RetributionThe Tekken community will be out in force with at least 549 players signed up for the hype of a brand-new game in the series. South Korea will be the popular pick to take it all, with representatives Jae-min knee Bae and Jinwoo SAINT Choi as the clear-cut best. However, Japan will also boast one of the top Tekken players: Daichi Yamasa nobi Nakayama. The best storyline going into the tournament could arguably be the contender status of Circa eSports Hoa Anakin Luu against the international powerhouses, but anyone could realistically qualify for the final spots.Killer InstinctThere has been plenty of movement with player tier lists since last years Evo and this wide-open field of contenders may be the best the games ever seen. The favorites will be Darnell Sleep Waller and Deion Thompxson Thompson. On their heels will be tournament staples Kenneth UA | Bass Armas and Jonathan RicoSuave DeLeon.Super Smash Bros. for Wii UWith 2,662 players, this is the second-largest tournament at Evo. For the majority of the games competitive life, it has been a one-man show: Team SoloMids Gonzalo ZeRo Barrios. He was the legend to beat. Now its a wide-open competition with heavyweights such as Team Liquids Nairoby Nairo Quezada and DTs Samuel Dabuz Buzby up against hopefuls such as DTs Jason ANTi Bates and Panda Globals Eric ESAM Lew.Sunday finals/main eventMortal Kombat XLIt wouldnt do the tournament justice to name Critical Reactions Dominique SonicFox McLean as the favorite and call it a day. For starters, his main competition is substantial: Panda Globals Brad Scar Vaughn and the United Kingdoms Denom PXP | A F0xy Grampa Jones. Both sport playstyle fits for SonicFox and boast impressive tournament credentials. After that, its a crapshoot of contenders that range from: Yomi Gamings Frank Slayer Perales, brothers Malik MIT and Yomis Denzell DJT Terry, Yomis Christian ForeverKing Quiles, to Brant Pig of the Hut McCaskill. One thing is for sure, theyre all going to need to play their absolute best to knock SonicFox from his pedestal.Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3The hype will never die. A game totally infused with fighting gamers personality, UMVC3 will yet again get its time to shine on the main stage. With defending champion Nicolas KaneBlueRiver Gonzalez in top form, this could be his repeat victory in the making.Last year left a bad taste in the mouths of many diehard UMVC3 fans and there will be plenty of players ready to rectify their mistakes. Chief among them is Christopher NYChrisG Gonzalez, with Panda Globals Raynel RayRay Hidalgo and Ryan FilipinoChamp Ramirez, and the legendary Justin JWong Wong of Evil Geniuses close behind. If the motivation to kick KaneBlueRiver from the top spot werent enough incentive, the fact that this could be UMVC3s last Evo trophy certainly will be.Guilty Gear Xrd: RevelatorGuilty Gear Xrd: Revelator will be on the big stage as the sole air-dasher or anime game for the main event lineup. If this is your first exposure to the beauty that is Guilty Gear, youre in for a fighting game feast. In addition to being one of the fastest games on the broadcast schedule, its smooth animation could make this the Evo showstopper. There will be plenty of healthy competition with more than 900 competitors, all with hopes for the anime crown. Whether youre a fan of rock and roll or just pure speed in a fighting game, dont blink when the action starts.The favorites for the title of king of Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator might all be from one region: Japan. The early hopefuls include Tsuyoshi FAB Oshida, Masahiro Machabo- Tominaga, Kenichi Ogawa Ogawa and Ryo Dogura Nozaki. Of the four mentioned, Machabo should be considered the odds-on favorite to take down the entire tournament. If his well-known and feared name werent enough, he recently dispatched Ogawa at YOUDEAL League 5 and FAB in convincing tournament sets. Look for perennial dark horses GGPs Ryota Kazunoko Inoue and Goichi Go1 Kishida to make a little noise as well.Super Smash Bros. MeleeThis long-standing Nintendo franchise makes its return to the final day of Evo. With a reported 2,372 participants, its the third-highest total in the entire event. Who is the favorite to take down Evo? There isnt an easy answer. Last years champion, Alliances Adam Armada Lindgren, should receive a mention by default. His form last year was magnificent and silenced any doubts. But that was last year. This year, it has been mostly Team Liquids Juan Hungrybox DeBiedma calling the shots. Any negative reaction to his tactics doesnt change the fact that hes a virtual lock for a top spot on the final day of the tournament.Then, you have the wild cards: Cloud9s Joseph Mang0 Marquez and Team Echo Foxs Jason Mew2King Zimmerman. Positive reports for all three of these contenders indicate that their momentum could propel them to the front of the line.Of course, with the popular names out of the way, the true dark horses of the game range from Tempo Storms Jeffrey Axe Williamson, Counter Logic Gamings Zachary SFAT Cordoni or even Panda Globals Justin Plup McGrath. It truly is anyones game.Street Fighter V The finale of the entire show is the next stop on the Capcom Pro Tour, the more than 5,000-participant juggernaut known as the Street Fighter V tournament. Despite the monumental number of players, the landscape for the latest Capcom fighting game is a bit easier to skim for favorites. On one hand, you have the two popular picks to take down the prize: Team Razers Lee Infiltration Seon-woo and Hajime Tokido Taniguchi. Then, you have other popular pocket picks such as Twitch and Red Bulls Daigo The Beast Umehara, Kenryo Mago Hayashi, Team Razers Keita Fuudo Ai and Kun Xian Ho, YouDeal Majestic Athletics Tatsuya Haitani Haitani and Qanba Douyus Zhuojun Xiao Hai Zeng to round out the list of strong contenders. We cant list them all, but within the Asian player ranks exist plenty of killers who could surprise the masses.Then, the underdog show (everyone else) is led by Evil Geniuses Justin Wong, BX3s Arman Phenom Hanjani, and Team Liquids Du NuckleDu Dang. With such a varied field and with so many pools of play, your contenders from outside of Asia need to be mentally fit and absolutely stellar at the game. Its an endurance game and that alone could prove daunting. Needless to say, Street Fighter V -- from the pool play to the final eight contenders -- will be an amazing show.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Green Bay Packers finally have an experienced traditional running back at their disposal with the return of James Starks.Starks was cleared to play Sunday at Tennessee for his first action since Oct. 9.

He was listed as questionable this week.Starks and the Packers never indicated which knee was injured.Without Starks and Eddie Lacy, who last played on Oct. 16 and then went on injured reserve, Packers coach Mike McCarthy has used a makeshift running game led by converted receiver Ty Montgomery with undrafted rookie Don Jackson sprinkled in.Jackson, however, was a healthy scratch against the Titans, which means the bulk of the work will fall on Starks and Montgomery.Starks was largely ineffective before his injury. He averaged juust 1.dddddddddddd8 yards per rush on 24 attempts before his knee injury, while Montgomery had two productive games as a runner (seven carries for 53 yards last week against the Colts and nine carries for 60 yards two weeks earlier against the Bears).The Packers did not get tight end Jared Cook?back; he, like Starks, returned to practice this past week.
