Eddie Lacy updates status of injured ankle
Eddie Lacy injured his ankle on Sunday night vs. the Giants.
On Sunday night, Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy was on pace to rush for over 100 yards for the second consecutive game for only the second time in his career. Unfortunately, Lacy suffered an ankle injury early in the third quarter and ended the day with 81 yards on 11 carries.
Lacy was limping on the sidelines and he got his ankle heavily taped. After the game, Lacy was able to walk off the field on his own power and he said that he should be ready to go when the Packers take on the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday.

“I’m a pretty tough person,” Lacy said via Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com. “I should be all right.”
Lacy might be alright for the Packers next game, but he was upset that he couldn't finish the game on Sunday night.
It is frustrating,” Lacy said, “but it happens. Injuries are a part of the game. It’s still early, but it’s definitely frustrating. Especially when you’re doing good, and you want to keep going but you can’t.”
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy believes Lacy's injury is not serious, but he'll know more as the Packers start their preparations for the Cowboys.
"Eddie’s had some tests done, so we really won’t know until he hits the field tomorrow," McCarthy said on Monday. "So I would say it’s not serious. But I don’t know what his status is for this week."
