Packers head coach Mike McCarthy spoke with the media this afternoon a day after his team's 27-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Here are some highlights:

On running back Eddie Lacy:

Eddie was here today and here for treatment. We'll see how he moves Thursday. Anytime you have ankle injuries, you won't know more until you seen them on the field.

Eddie Lacy wants to play football. If he wants to go, he'll go. There's a medical process that goes with this.

On Lacy dealing with an ankle his rookie season:

Going back to Eddie's rookie year, he fought that injury the whole second half of the season. The medical staff did a great job. Every injury is different. All the credit goes to Eddie and his mental preparation.

On Davante Adams' ankle injury:

He feels better today. We'll see how he moves Thursday. Thursday will be a Wednesday practice for us.

On James Starks:

James Starks is a hell of running back going back to his rookie season.We brought him up and he was a big part of our Super Bowl run. He's a guy who takes advantages of his opportunities.

On Ty Montgomery's performance:

I thought Ty played really well on offense. His opportunities will increase on special teams. I thought he did some good things.

On sticking with kicker Mason Crosby:

I always knew he was going to be the all-time leading kicker in Green Bay Packers history. He's an outstanding talent. We had a lot invested in him and he had a lot invested in us. He's always been an extremely talented kicker. There's usually not a lot of patience with kickers. It was against the norm.

On linebacker Joe Thomas:

Joe Thomas is a good young football player. He's a young man we talked a lot about (on cut day). Our personnel department does a good job building lists and boards and we sticked to our board.

On the 10-play, 80-yard drive that had Cobb and Montgomery in the backfield:

I thought it was probably the most important drive of the game, but we were able to keep moving the ball. It was a critical point in the game. Aaron orchestrated it very well and was patient with it.
