Lacy (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Bears, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Lacy's second-half surge was delayed, likely due to a series of ankle and groin concerns, but he's finally imitated the running back that spurred his selection in the first few picks of fantasy drafts this summer. He'll attempt to replicate Sunday's 100-yard performance against a Chicago defense that has allowed running backs to romp for 4.5 YPC and six total touchdowns in 2015.
Lacy (ankle) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Lacy has been hampered by lower-body injuries throughout the season, with his ankle(s) arguably being the most consistent concern. However, there's no indication that the current issue is serious, and he just had his first 100-yard game of the year in Sunday's win over the Vikings. Having seemingly reclaimed the lead-back role, Lacy could be in for a busy Thanksgiving against the Packers, particularly if the current weather forecast holds up. It isn't supposed to be too cold by Wisconsin standards, but the forecast does call for precipitation (likely rain) in addition to above-average wind. On a less optimistic note, there is some chance James Starks will end up getting most of the touches if Lacy struggles early on in the game.
Lacy (ankle) was listed as a limited practice participant on Monday's estimated practice report. Lacy is battling through some aches and pains, but on the heels of Sunday's effort in which he ran for a season-high 100 yards on 22 carries against the Vikings, he's trending in the right direction as Thursday night's game against the Bears approaches.
Lacy (groin) ran for a season-high 100 yards on 22 carries and caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards in Sunday's 30-13 win at Minnesota. Lacy, who missed Week 10 with his groin injury, had a total of just 20 carries over his previous three games, but looked good Sunday, carrying the ball over 20 times for the first time this year. Meanwhile, James Starks returned to more of a complimentary role, rushing for just 14 yards on eight carries, while catching one pass for 30 yards. Assuming Lacy didn't suffer any setbacks to his groin, he should continue to see plenty of work. Next up for Lacy and the Packers will be the Bears on Thanksgiving night.
Lacy (groin) is active for Sunday's game in Minnesota, Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin reports. After a DNP in Week 10, Lacy fit in an uninhibited week of drills, leaving little concern about his ability to suit up. Instead, his workload is the primary question mark. Although James Starks is slated to start, Lacy will have a role to-be-determined out of the backfield versus a Vikings defense that has allowed 3.8 YPC and one touchdown to running backs over the last five contests.
