Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy is listed as probable on the official injury report heading into the team's Week 15 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Lacy is dealing with a sprained ankle he sustained against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14.
Lacy did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but was a limited participant in practice on Friday. The plan all along was for Lacy to wait until Friday to test his ankle, and it does sound like things went well, given the probable designation.
The rookie running back struggled against the Atlanta Falcons, at least when the second half came along. He finished with 20 carries for 65 yards, but had a touchdown and added 25 yards off of three receptions. He may have been a victim of poor blocking or the ankle injury slowed him down.
Fantasy Impact: That said, Lacy seems like he's healthy, and the Packers likely wouldn't give him the start (or list him as probable) if he wasn't well enough to play. Fantasy owners should keep Lacy in the lineup until they hear otherwise, and enjoy the prospects of a game against Dallas, which will be without its best tackler in Sean Lee.
