Packers RB Eddie Lacy won't practice until Friday at the earliest

Much like Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart, you won't be seeing Packers running back Eddie Lacy on the practice field until at least Friday. That's what head coach Mike McCarthy insinuated during his Wednesday press conference. He said, "The projection is [Lacy] may practice Friday." Lacy is currently rehabbing an ankle injury that limited him during last week's win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Analysis:

Lacy picked up the ankle injury during the game and then returned to finish it. However, he said the injury affected his ability to break tackles, and he averaged just 3.25 yards per carry against a poor Falcons defense. The Packers' beat writers don't seem overly concerned about Lacy's health right now, maybe because he did play with the injury last week, but make sure James Starks @James44Starks is owned in your league. He would have a golden opportunity versus the Cowboys if Lacy can't play in Week 15.
