Eddie Lacy had 17 carries for 99 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

Lacy broke a tackle and powered his way to a 44-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He gained consistent yardage against the Bucs all game, averaging 5.8 YPC. Lacy went over 1,000 yards on the season with the performance. The Packers rested him late with a leg injury, but he shouldn't miss any practice time.

Eddie Lacy (eye) is active for Week 16 against the Bucs.

Lacy has been dealing with an issue with his contact lens, but his status was never in doubt. RT Bryan Bulaga (concussion) is also active. The Packers inactives are QB Scott Tolzien, CB Davon House, LB Carl Bradford, C Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, WR Jeff Janis, and DT Bruce Gaston.
Dec 21 - 11:36 AM

Eddie Lacy (eye) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Goggled or not goggled, Fat Eddie is a top-five RB1 Sunday at Tampa Bay.
Dec 19 - 1:51 PM

Speaking Thursday, Eddie Lacy (eye) said he's "very blind" and may have to wear goggles for Week 16 against the Bucs.

Lacy's eye is irritated due to an issue with his contact lens. He hopes to be able to wear contacts for the game Sunday, but left the door open for him to pull off the Eric Dickerson look. Either way, Lacy's status for Week 16 isn't in serious question, though he and James Starks could split work more evenly than last week. Lacy is currently our No. 5 running back for fantasy title week.
Dec 19 - 9:35 AM

Eddie Lacy (eye) remained limited on Thursday.

Lacy's health is not a concern for the fantasy finals. He's locked in as a top-five RB1 for Week 16.
Dec 18 - 2:29 PM

Eddie Lacy (eye) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Packers listed Lacy with an eye injury, so this isn't related to his hip issue. With 100 total yards in seven straight games, Lacy is locked in as an RB1 for Week 16 against the Bucs.
Dec 17 - 2:49 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 15 times for 97 yards and a touchdown and caught two balls for 11 yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to Buffalo.

He's now gone over 100 total yards in seven straight games. Amid concerns regarding his Week 14 hip bruise, Lacy got the start and dominated Buffalo's defense in the early going. By the 14:14 mark in the second quarter, he had eight rushes for 72 yards and a touchdown. The Packers were forced to throw the football after falling behind, limiting Lacy's second-half rushing work. James Starks finished with just five touches to Lacy's 17. Lock in Lacy as an RB1 entering a Week 16 date with the Buccaneers.
Dec 14 - 4:26 PM

Eddie Lacy is active for Week 15 at Buffalo.

Beat writers expect Lacy to share the workload with James Starks, but the Packers were hoping to divvy up the workload even before he suffered a hip bruise. Lacy is a borderline RB1 against a sagging Bills run defense. The Packers' Week 15 inactives are QB Scott Tolzien, CB Davon House, LB Carl Bradford, C Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, WR Jeff Janis, and DT Bruce Gaston.
Dec 14 - 11:38 AM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky expects there to be a 50-50 timeshare between Eddie Lacy (hip, probable) and James Starks Week 15 against the Bills.

Demovsky said the plan was to split work between Lacy and Starks even before Lacy hurt his hip late in the Packers' win over the Falcons on Monday night. In a tough matchup and with an uncertain workload, Lacy is more of an RB2 for the fantasy semifinals.
Dec 13 - 12:51 PM

Eddie Lacy (hip) is probable for Week 15 against the Bills.

Lacy is fine for Sunday, but coach Mike McCarthy hinted at a split between Lacy and James Starks in the backfield. Lacy gets a bump down the ranks for Week 15. He faces a tough run defense at less than 100 percent and in a likely time split. Lacy is our No. 10 running back for fantasy semifinals week.
Dec 12 - 12:54 PM

Speaking Thursday, Eddie Lacy (hip) hinted he could miss Week 15.

Lacy said he's making progress, but that there's "still some things I need to figure out." Lacy said there are hurdles he must clear, and that he doesn't want to put the Pack at a disadvantage if he "can't play effectively." Lacy said he has "no idea" if he'd be at risk of further injury if he played. All together, the comments paint a pessimistic picture of Lacy's Week 15 status, especially considering the Packers' notoriously conservative medical staff. A solid Friday practice could change everything, but for now, Lacy owners need to have James Starks on speed dial.
Dec 11 - 3:23 PM

Speaking following Thursday's practice, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Eddie Lacy (hip) is "making progress."

Lacy was officially "limited" on Thursday, but did "little to nothing" in the estimation of beat writer Rob Demovsky. Demovsky wonders if Lacy's injury is "more of an issue than originally thought." What Lacy is able to do on Friday will be key. For now, owners can keep him penciled in as their RB1, but need to be readying a back-up plan.
Dec 11 - 2:26 PM

Eddie Lacy (hip) did "little to nothing" in the portion of Packers practice open to the media on Thursday.

He was officially "limited." Lacy's extremely limited participation led reliable beat writer Rob Demovsky to wonder if Lacy's hip issue is "more of an issue than originally thought." It's still quite possible the Pack are simply doing everything they can to limit Lacy's reps on a short week, but it's become a situation that calls for a back-up plan. James Starks would be a plug-and-play FLEX option were Lacy to sit against the Bills. Lacy's status will be updated no later than Friday afternoon.
Dec 11 - 1:44 PM

Eddie Lacy (hip) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

Lacy's removal late in Monday night's win was precautionary. He's on track to play this week barring a setback. Lacy will be an RB1 against the Bills.
