Packers injury report: Morgan Burnett still out, Eddie Lacy questionable

New, comments

Don't get your hopes up about Eddie Lacy playing against the Bengals, but at least be happy that he's doing well enough that the Packers haven't declared him out.

The Green Bay Packers will still be without safety Morgan Burnett for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, which isn't too much of a surprise. In a positive piece of news, running back Eddie Lacy has been listed as questionable. ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde tweeted out the injury report on Friday morning.

Wilde added this follow-up from McCarthy on Lacy's condition.

Presumably, a decision will be made over the weekend about whether or not Lacy would play. Given that he's coming off a concussion and he's a rookie who has missed an entire week of practice, I'd count on him either missing the game or being extremely limited. Given James Starks' excellent performance in Week 2, there's no reason to rush Lacy.

It's good to see that none of the other players with nagging injuries, most notably Johnny Jolly, look like they'll miss out this weekend. Jolly's presence has made a massive difference in the Packers' run defense and he'll be a big miss if he's limited in any way against Cincinnati. Tramon Williams will need to be healthy and on his A-game as well, since he'll probably see quite a bit of A.J. Green.
