While Packers rookie tailback Eddie Lacy sat out practice on Thursday with an ankle injury, he’s likely to play on Sunday when Green Bay plays at Chicago for the NFC North title, coach Mike McCarthy said this afternoon.
“I feel Eddie’s in a good place,” McCarthy said at his Thursday press conference. . . . I expect him to play.”
McCarthy said that Lacy would not have to practice on Friday to play, but the Packers’ coach indicated he believed Lacy would participate in the club’s final major workout tomorrow.
Lacy, 23, has rushed for 1,112 yards in his first NFL season.
