Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy is officially listed a probable on the injury report, according to Jason Wilde of ESPN. Lacy returned as a full participant in practice on Thursday and suffered no setbacks, so he was not limited on Friday, either.
Lacy suffered the concussion in a Week 2 win over the Washington Redskin, after just one carry for 10 yards. In Week 1, he had 14 carries for 41 yards and one reception for 31 yards. The rookie is the team's starter, though their backup situation isn't exactly set. James Starks is out for this game, so fellow rookie Johnathan Franklin will likely earn some carries.
Exactly how many carries Franklin will get in the event Lacy plays is up for debate, but given that the Packers likely want to see more of what Franklin could do and with Lacy's injury taken into account, he could see less than a full load.
Fantasy Impact: We said at the beginning of the season -- before Lacy was named the starter -- that the Packers would probably end up with at least one solid fantasy football back. Through three games, they've got an average of 128.0 rushing yards per game, so we were mostly right. Unfortunately, that production has come from multiple running backs. Lacy can establish himself as "the guy" with a big performance and fantasy owners should give him the start in hopes he does as much.
