Coach Mike McCarthy said he regretted not getting Eddie Lacy more touches in the Week 2 win over the Jets.
Lacy got just three first-half carries as the Packers fell behind 21-3. And just like the Seahawks, the Jets chose to play with a single high safety for much of the game. That aggressive kind of scheme won't be a weekly occurrence though, as the vast majority of defensive coordinators will fear Aaron Rodgers and play coverage. Lacy has another difficult matchup in Week 3 against the Lions, but then the floodgates will open. Sep 18 - 8:22 AM

Eddie Lacy rushed 13 times for 43 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.

Lacy's Week 1 concussion was in the rearview mirror, but a rough matchup was not. The Jets' elite front seven gave up no holes and were sure-handed in their tackles, leading to a long run of 10 yards for Lacy. He missed out on a goal-line chance when Aaron Rodgers went play-action from the 1-yard line and hit Randall Cobb for a score. Lacy has another very difficult in Week 3 against the Lions, but then gets two good spots against the Bears and Vikings. Owners need to hang on tight and wait for the tide to turn.

Eddie Lacy (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Lacy quickly progressed through the concussion protocols, getting a full week of practice in. He's ready to rock as a battering ram, although the Jets' front seven has the potential to be suffocating. The Packers inactives: Scott Tolzien, Demetri Goodson, Carl Bradford, Brad Jones, Bryan Bulaga, Jeff Janis and Jayrone Elliott.

Eddie Lacy (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 2 against the Jets.

Fire Lacy up for fantasy lineups. He has a tough test against the Jets' strong defensive front, but remains on the back end of the RB1 map. Lacy isn't an ideal FanDuel play in a game the Packers will likely attack the Jets through the air.
Sep 12 - 12:50 PM

After wearing Riddell's new SpeedFlex concussion-resistant helmet Week 1 against the Seahawks and suffering a concussion, Eddie Lacy is going back to his rookie-year helmet.

Lacy took a thundering helmet-to-helmet hit from headhunter Brandon Meriweather in Week 2 last season, sidelining Lacy with his first NFL concussion. He now believes the helmet wasn't the problem. This really has nothing to do with Lacy's performance. He's fully expected to start against the Jets on Sunday. Lacy is our No. 10 running back for Week 2 against a strong D-line.
Sep 12 - 10:49 AM

Eddie Lacy (concussion) got in a full practice on Thursday, and has been officially cleared for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Lacy's status is no longer up in the air. The bad news is, he's returning to a tough matchup with the Jets' elite run defense. Lacy should be in for plenty of volume in a game that may not be close, however. He's a low-end RB1, checking in as Rotoworld's No. 10 back for Week 2.
Sep 11 - 3:15 PM

Eddie Lacy (concussion) was spotted in full pads at Packers practice on Thursday.

It means he's been cleared, though he'll likely officially be listed as "limited" on the injury report. Either way, Lacy continues to trend in the right direction for Sunday's tough matchup with the Jets. He'll be a low-end RB1 for the Packers' home opener.
Sep 11 - 1:23 PM

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, "it appears" Eddie Lacy (concussion) will play Sunday against the Jets.

Lacy is in the final stages of the NFL's concussion protocol, with the only hurdle left being clearance from an independent neurologist. "He's had good workouts," said coach Mike McCarthy. "He's progressed very quickly." The Jets pose a difficult Week 2 matchup for Lacy, but he is an every-down back in a potent offense who gets goal-line chances. He'll immediately resume RB1 status.
Sep 11 - 12:00 AM

Coach Mike McCarthy says Eddie Lacy has had some good workouts, and is near the end of the league's concussion protocol.

Lacy didn't practice Wednesday, but he was on the field with his teammates and interacting with coaches. The Packers are likely just being cautious with Lacy, considering it's his second concussion in a calendar year. At this point, it sounds like there's a good chance he gets cleared for Sunday's tilt with the Jets.
Sep 10 - 3:06 PM

Eddie Lacy (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

The good news is Lacy was in attendance off to the side, so he isn't holed up in a dark room. Lacy suffered his concussion last Thursday night, so he'll have ten days to gain clearance. We'll just have to keep checking in on him the remainder of the week. James Starks will get the start against the Jets if Lacy can't play.
Sep 10 - 1:41 PM

A source tells PFT that Eddie Lacy (concussion) is optimistic he'll be cleared for Week 2.

Speaking just 24 hours after Thursday's game, coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy had already cleared the first step of the concussion protocol. He still has a long way to go, but the quick initial clearance combined with this PFT report suggests there aren't any lingering effects from his 2013 concussion. James Starks needs to be owned while we wait and see if Lacy can play against the Lions one week from Sunday.
Sep 5 - 11:49 PM

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports Eddie Lacy has already cleared the first step in his concussion protocol.

Lacy still hasn't been cleared to practice, but it's a positive sign for his Week 2 outlook. This is the second concussion for Lacy in less than a year, so there's some concern he could have trouble getting on the field. Lacy has nine days to get cleared for next week's game against the Jets.
Sep 5 - 6:00 PM

Eddie Lacy is wearing Riddell's new SpeedFlex helmet this season, and it's supposed to help against concussions.

Per Riddell, the new helmet "helps better absorb impact force by adding flexibility to certain parts of the helmet." A number of players who have previously suffered concussions are wearing it this season. Lacy, of course, left Thursday night's opener against the Seahawks with his second concussion in a one-year span. He didn't take a big hit, and hopefully avoided a serious head injury. Lacy has ten days to get cleared for the Week 2 tilt against the Jets.

Eddie Lacy was forced from the Packers' Week 1 game against the Seahawks with a concussion.

Lacy departed midway through the fourth quarter. He flattened Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor on a collision, but checked out after his next carry. Lacy was having a mixed night before going down, rushing just 12 times for 34 yards, but also showing impressive power and nimbleness. He caught three passes for 11 yards, and was doling out punishment. He got vultured by FB John Kuhn for a two-yard score in the first quarter. The concussion is extra concerning because it's Lacy's second in as many NFL seasons. The good news is, he has 10 days to get cleared for Week 2. If Lacy can suit up, the matchup won't be any easier in the Jets' run-erasing defense. James Starks is the next man up at running back.
Sep 4 - 11:17 PM

Packers RBs coach Sam Gash believes Eddie Lacy is capable of leading the league in rushing and total yards.

While Lacy might not be the favorite, he's one of a handful of contenders. He's been dominant this preseason across just 21 offensive snaps, rushing for 61 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries while breaking six tackles. Lacy's also caught two balls for 22 yards. In Aaron Rodgers' starts last season, Lacy averaged 99 yards rushing on 23 carries per game. He's an easy top-five pick.
