Newly acquired running back Knile Davis is probably going to get a chance to carry the ball Thursday night for the Packers, primarily because they don’t have very many options.
He may get to play cornerback too (not really).
The Packers announced that running back Eddie Lacy is out for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears, along with a number of others. Lacy is in the process of getting a second opinion on his ankle injury, so the fact he’s not playing on a short week is no surprise.
Running back James Starks, tight end Jared Cook, cornerbacks Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins, safety Chis Banjo and wide receiver Jared Abbrederis are all out for Thursday, which ought to make the inactive list pretty anticlimactic.
And with Sam Shields going on injured reserve this week, the Packers will be without their top three cornerbacks.
Wide receiver Davante Adams is listed as questionable, and was a limited participant in practice today as he is in the concussion protocol.
