Eddie Lacy was really rolling against the Giants on Sunday night. The Green Bay Packers running back racked up 81 carries on 11 rushing attempts, and it looked he would clear the century mark with ease.
Alas, injury may have put a stop to Lacy’s big night. Tom Silverstein for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the fourth-year veteran is questionable to return after sustaining an ankle injury.
It doesn’t look like Lacy is coming back in anytime soon either. The 234-pound back was seen sitting on a trainer’s table, shoe off, ankle heavily wrapped. Obviously, he might be simply receiving treatment in the hopes of re-entering the game, but as of this writing, Lacy looked far from ready.
There may not be any reason for Lacy to return anyway. Veteran James Starks is more than capable of coming on in relief, as he has often done in the past, and with the game now into the fourth quarter, the Packers will hope he can finish the job.
The concern for Green Bay is that it could be a potential long-term injury for Lacy.
