Green Bay Packers premier back Eddie Lacy (ankle) is listed as probable for the battle in San Francisco on Sunday.
Lacy was a full participant throughout the week of practice, after sharing work with James Starks in the MNF win over the Chiefs. Lacy will likely handle a larger percentage of the snaps and touches in Week 4, as there's been no indication that his ankle will be a lingering issue.
Green Bay Packers featured back Eddie Lacy (ankle) has implied that he's not overly concerned about his ankle, NFL.com reports. "It's not going to be a lingering thing," he said. "It's going away. My rookie year, it really didn't go away."
Lacy suffered an ankle injury in 2013, but he missed only one game and was able to shoulder the rushing load into the postseason.
He did not appear to be favoring the ankle during the win over Kansas City on Monday night, finishing with 46 yards on 10 carries to go with three receptions for 41 yards, all while splitting snaps with James Starks.
Starks' 18 touches surpassed teammate Eddie Lacy's 13, but the veteran couldn't find much room to run Monday night.
While Starks made good on his lone target, the Chiefs limited his production overall. With another week for Lacy's ankle to receive treatment, Starks will likely see his touches scaled back, but remain decently involved as the Packers' No. 2 tailback in Week 4 against the 49ers.
If Eddie Lacy (ankle) plays next Monday against the Chiefs, he could split running-back reps with running back
In Monday's media session, head coach Mike McCarthy said, "We could play 50/50 with Eddie and James."
Lacy will be consumed with treating his sprained right ankle this week, with Thursday providing the first window into his potential availability in Week 3. In the meantime, Starks will prepare to start after filling in admirably at running back versus the
And really, you should have expected as much. Week 14 was Lacy's third game in four with at least 90 rushing yards. He has not just one touchdown, but two, in three of his last five. He's back to being the first-round back you drafted him to be.
Starks, with his average of 4.2 yards per carry, is a fine handcuff option, and you certainly weren't wrong to add him given the concern over Lacy's hip, but yeah, Lacy is here to stay, putting up stud numbers even against a Bills defense that entered the day ranked eighth against the run.
