No practice for Eddie Lacy on Tuesday

The Packers brought in a new running back on Tuesday when they acquired Knile Davis in a trade with the Chiefs and their need for healthy bodies in the backfield will be illustrated on the team’s practice report.

Coach Mike McCarthy said that Eddie Lacy will not practice because of the ankle injury he’s been dealing with for the last couple of weeks. McCarthy said that Lacy, who played 31 snaps and ran 17 times last Sunday, is “very sore” with the team’s game against the Bears a couple of days away.

James Starks is out after having knee surgery, leaving Davis as the only healthy tailback in town. It’s unclear if he’ll be in the lineup at this point.

“Until we get going, the goal is to get him ready for practice today, and then we’ll take it from there,” McCarthy said, via the team’s website. “It’s part of the NFL landscape, and it’s obviously a big challenge when you’re on a short week. But he’s definitely a talented young player.”

McCarthy also said that practice squad back Don Jackson will get some reps to make sure he’s ready if called on come Thursday.

    Well, McCarthy realizes that there is a new RB on the team, so he’s reacting a lot faster than usual. Maybe this will be a good week.

    Want Lacy to be productive? Tie a Whopper with cheese on the back of the FB. Guarantee 100 yds rushing and 10 plus broken tackles.

    Must be an all-day special at the local buffet…

    Packers are disappointing this year.

    No practice, no problem.

    No lunch, then there’s a problem.

    That’s a weight off our shoulders.

    Eddie Lard doesn’t need practice. He’s got stumbling down pat.

    Aaron is really all we need.

    Right?

    Will he still make his photo shoot for Jenny Craig?

    Mike McCarthy just wanted less competition for seconds at the team meal today.

    Doesn’t Eddie look graceful in that picture?
    I love big men.

    First time I have seen Lacy. He is the best overweight back I have ever watched. One tough dude.

    Eddy needs to stop hurdling people… every time he does that his 260 pound jelly belly crushes his ankles…

    He looks like a reject Guard for the Arena League

    Seeing as the game is in 2 days, he will need to rest it, if there is any chance of him to play.

    Lacy averages over 5 yards a carry and while I feel they should give him the ball more, he IS an effective running back.

    I also find it unique, that some rival fans OBSESS about Lacy’s diet, more than a Super model with their big magazine shoot or fashion show coming up.

    Kniles Davis will be the best rb on your team
    He will have over 800 yrs this season and can catch out of the backfield. He is the fastest rb you will have. Can returns kickoffs.
    4.35 speed at 231 lbs. He is a very good back.
    He didn’t fit the way the chiefs run block
    He is a power back who can have a 150 yrs game anytime.

    Dahmer took all my fat jokes. 😉

    The next time he rushes for 150 yards (not yrs) will be the first time in his NFL career.
