It looks like the Green Bay Packers will still be scrambling in their backfield.
They have ruled Eddie Lacy out of their Thursday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears, via NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
Head coach Mike McCarthy told Garafolo earlier that it would take a miracle for Lacy to play tomorrow. Also, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Tuesday that Lacy could be out for several weeks.
Sources: The #Packers are expected to be without workhorse RB Eddie Lacy for several weeks. It's more than a sprained ankle.

The Packers were already without running back James Starks, who also missed their last game against the Dallas Cowboys. Knile Davis was signed by the Packers this week to account for a lack of depth, but it looks like he could see a lot of action tomorrow.
Green Bay also will be without tight end Jared Cook, safety Chris Banjo, wide receiver Jared Abberdeis, cornerback Damarious Russell and cornerback Quinten Russell.
