Packers' Eddie Lacy: Missing another practice

Lacy (ankle) will not practice Tuesday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy is still bothered by significant soreness, which will lead to a second straight practice absence ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears. Lacy was able to tough it in Sunday's loss to Dallas, taking 17 carries for 64 yards as the team's only healthy running back. With James Starks (knee) expected to miss at least a couple more games, wide receiver Ty Montgomery should be in line for more backfield snaps even if Lacy is ready by Thursday. The Packers may also be forced to look outside the organization, particularly if Lacy can't play in Thursday's game.
