Eddie Lacy practicing regularly for fantasy owners

Jeff Gross

The Packers rookie running back practiced on both Monday and Wednesday and looks ready to go for Week 5. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy (concussion) participated in the team's practice on both Monday and Wednesday, according to a report by Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Lacy had rushed for 51 yards on 15 carries including his first career touchdown this season before being injured against the Washington Redskins in Week 2.

Fantasy impact: Although teammate James Starks put together a solid effort against the Redskins after Lacy departed in Week 2, he too has dealt with his share of injuries this season, most notably to his knee. Starks is expected to be inactive against the Lions this week and did not practice Wednesday, Vandermause confirmed.

With Green Bay's backfield being hit with the injury bug, it's been a while since they had consistent production from the running game. Even when they do, the fact still remains they are a pass first team. That said, Lacy is one of their top draft choices and there is no doubt that he is still the go to guy for the Packers in the rushing attack.

It sometimes takes a while for players to come back from concussions, but Lacy doesn't necessarily have a history of them. Fantasy owners are advised to stay posted to injury reports as Sunday's game creeps closer.
