Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy was on his way to a good game midway through the third quarter. When the Packers took a 14-3 lead, Lacy had rolled up nine carries for 77 yards, including a 31-yard rumble to help set up the Packers’ second touchdown.

By the end of the third quarter, Lacy’s line was up to 11 carries for 81 yards. However, Lacy’s day may be done - he tweaked his left ankle at some point during the game, and spent the last drive of the third quarter on the trainer’s table. With about four minutes left in the third quarter, the Packers announced that Lacy is questionable to return to the game due to that injury.

James Starks will carry the load in Lacy’s absence, and he has had one of his better games of the season so far. As of the publishing of this post, Starks has five carries for 31 yards. The Packers only have two tailbacks on the active roster.

Stay tuned for more updates.
