Lacy followed up his breakthrough Week 11 performance with an even better Week 12 on Thursday. He came out of the gate scorching, including a 25-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. It was his second consecutive 100-yard rushing game. Lacy appears to have found his stride late in the season. He has a favorable matchup next Thursday in Detroit, as the
Eddie Lacy (ankle) is listed as active Thursday against the Bears.
With rainy weather permeating Green Bay, the Green Bay Packers could pursue a ground-based game plan, which would clearly benefit Lacy after Sunday's breakout performance. Furthering his potential is a Bears defense that has yielded 4.5 YPC to running backs this season.
Eddie 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 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 Bears, 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.
Eddie 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.
