As it turns out, Eddie Lacy not practicing fully might be the least of the Packers worries at running back.
Via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, veteran running back James Starks wasn’t even on the practice field with what was described as a knee injury. That left Lacy, doing limited work on a sore left ankle, as the only running back making an appearance in Packers practice at all.
“Well, it’s going to have to be next guy up,” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “We’re going to have to see who that is and adjust accordingly. I’m thinking Eddie is going to be OK this week. Hopefully.”
Lacy was heavily taped but doing individual drills during the portion of practice open to reporters. If he’s able to play Sunday against the Cowboys, they’d still likely need to make a roster move to add a third running back to the roster.
Fullback Aaron Ripowski is on the roster but not much of a ball-carrier, while running back Don Jackson is on their practice squad.
