Coach McCarthy: Packers Eddie Lacy could be back on the field for practice Thursday
GREEN BAY — Coach Mike McCarthy had good news Monday, September 21st about the status of injured Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy.
Lacy suffered an ankle injury in the Packers’ 27-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.
Speaking to reporters Monday night, McCarthy said Lacy was in for medical treatment earlier in the day at the team’s Lambeau Field facilities.
The Packers’ next game is next Monday against the Kansas City Chiefs. McCarthy said Lacy could be on the field when the team holds practice Thursday.
McCarthy also wouldn’t rule out Lacy from being able to play next week for NFC North leader Green Bay (2-0).
Lacy was injured during the Packers’ 10-play, 80-yard touchdown drive in the first possession of Sunday’s game. He didn’t return to the game and was taken to the locker room on a cart later in the first quarter.
James Starks filled in for Lacy the rest of the way and finished with 95 yards on 20 carries.
