Packers' Eddie Lacy: Health may determine return to Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Lacy's (ankle) potential return to the Packers as a free agent may depend on his health, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. "I'd love to see Eddie back," McCarthy said. "Eddie is going through a medical situation. I clearly understand his contract situation. That's really something we're continuing to work through. Until Eddie even clears the medical threshold, we'll have to see where we are.

Precipitated by issues with his weight, Lacy put together a dismal campaign in 2015, notching career lows in every relevant category outside of receiving touchdowns. The subsequent offseason was notable for his initial devotion to P90X, but he seemed to boast a less-than-desirable stature as the regular season approached. He nonetheless seemed rejuvenated through the first four games, churning out 5.5 YPC along the way. In the final outing of the run, he sustained a left ankle injury, which he was able to play through in Week 6 against the Cowboys but not at all thereafter. With damage beyond a sprain, surgery was ordered up in October, from which Lacy has only recently ditched his walking boot and the scooter that he used to move about. Assuming the Packers like what they see in upcoming evaluations, the unrestricted free agent is a candidate to remain with the sole organization he's ever known. The composition of the backfield will be altered, though, as Ty Montgomery is expected to be recast as a running back.

Packers' Eddie Lacy: Moving without boot, scooter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lacy recently rid himself of the walking boot and scooter that he required to move about after season-ending ankle surgery, Rob Demovsky of reports.

When Lacy's season came to a close after Week 6 due to an ankle injury, he was en route to a resurgent campaign, averaging 5.1 YPC on his 71 rushes through five games. Unfortunately for the running back, the aforementioned ailment included damage beyond a sprain, which forced an abbreviated season for the first time in his career. Among the roster decisions facing the Packers in the offseason, Lacy's unrestricted free agency will likely be the most impactful to the Packers' scheme for next season. More than likely, a prove-it deal may be coming his way to ensure he's fully recovered and, more importantly, is able to fend off noted issues with his weight.

Packers' Eddie Lacy: Season over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lacy (ankle) will remain on injured reserve for the rest of the season, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

With the decision to allow rookie cornerback Makinton Dorleant (hamstring) to return to practice Wednesday, the Packers have exhausted their one choice to make another appearance this season. Consequently, Lacy, an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, may have played his last down as a Packer. As for the rest of the campaign, the backfield will be the domain of James Starks and recent pickup Christine Michael.

Packers' Eddie Lacy: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lacy will be placed on injured reserve due to his ankle injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After a second opinion, Lacy's left ankle suffered more than a sprain, requiring surgery to alleviate the concern. Under the NFL's new rules concerning IR, each team can activate one player from the list during the season, so his recovery will be one to monitor closely in the coming weeks and months. For the time being, the Packers' backfield is ripe with uncertainty. Scooped up from the Chiefs earlier this week, Davis will likely require some time to learn the nuances of the playbook, relegating him to kick-return duties. Outside of Davis, Ty Montgomery has received reps out of the backfield of late, but his pass-catching chops will likely make him a complementary piece to recently promoted running back Don Jackson.
