Lacy is listed as active Sunday at Tennessee, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. One week ago, Lacy landed on the Seahawks' list of inactives, partly due to the return to health of Thomas Rawls. Head coach Pete Carroll has opted to have four running backs available Sunday, so Lacy will vie for reps with Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and Rawls. Based on each player's individual snap count on the season, Lacy may sit fourth on the pecking order.
Lacy (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday at Seattle. With the return of Thomas Rawls to the lineup, the Seahawks have opted to make Lacy a healthy scratch just two games into his stint with the organization. Perhaps only an injury to Rawls, C.J. Prosise or rookie Chris Carson will provide Lacy with another opportunity to contribute. That said, Lacy trudged his way to just three yards on five carries and seven offensive snaps in the regular-season opener, so he may also find himself out of a job in the near future.
Thomas Rawls (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, which could translate to a diminished role for Lacy, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Lacy only played seven snaps while Rawls sat out Week 1 against the Packers, finishing with three yards on five carries. Given his minimal duties in Rawls' absence, Lacy could be shut completely out of the Week 2 game plan, and at best figures to have a very limited role. Rawls and Chris Carson are both better bets to lead Seattle in carries.
Lacy gained three yards on five carries and didn't draw any targets in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Packers. Unable to take advantage of Thomas Rawls' absence despite getting the start, Lacy ended up with just seven offensive snaps while Chris Carson logged 27 and C.J. Prosise had 15, Pro Football Focus reports. Prosise was held to 11 yards on four carries and surprisingly didn't draw any targets, but Carson had 39 yards on six carries and caught his only target for 10 more, picking up most of his yardage on a 30-yard scamper. Given that he finished third among the team's running backs in snaps and yards without Rawls (ankle) in the picture, Lacy doesn't have much appeal for Week 2 against the 49ers. Lacy could even be stuck on the inactive list (or flat out released) once Rawls is available.
Lacy is expected to start Sunday's game in Green Bay due to Thomas Rawls' (ankle) absence, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. The Seahawks will give Rawls an extra week to rest his ankle, leaving Lacy plenty of opportunity as the primary running back in Week 1. While Lacy will have to contend with C.J. Prosise and perhaps Chris Carson for reps, Lacy should receive the most carries among teammates in his return to Lambeau Field.
