The Packers should have running back Eddie Lacy on the field against the Jets on Sunday.
Lacy suffered a concussion in the season-opening loss to the Seahawks, but the extra time provided by playing that game on Thursday has been enough for him to get the green light to return to action in Week Two. Lacy practiced for the second straight day on Friday and was listed as probable on the team’s final injury report of the week.
Now the team will just have to figure out if right tackle Bryan Bulaga will be blocking for him. Bulaga was listed as questionable with the knee injury he suffered against Seattle and coach Mike McCarthy outlined what Bulaga needs to do if he’s going to be in the game.
“He needs to go out and be able to do the ‘move the ball’ segment, to go through and sustain a drive,” McCarthy said, via the team. “That’s usually what you’re looking for when you have someone coming off that type of injury.”
Derek Sherrod would replace Bulaga in the starting lineup. The Packers also ruled out linebacker Brad Jones with a quad injury and listed tight end Brandon Bostick as probable.
