Eddie Lacy injury update: misses practice Wenesday, uncertain fantasy play for Week 3

Matthew Stockman

Packers running back Eddie Lacy sat out practice on Wednesday and is recovering from a concussion. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy missed practice on Wednesday after suffering a concussion in the team's Week 2 win over the Washington Redskins according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. It's expected that Lacy will miss Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, with James Starks filling in for him in the starting lineup.

Lacy got knocked out in the first quarter of the game last week, when Redskins' safety Brendan Meriweather nailed him with a helmet-to-helmet hit.

Fantasy impact: Once Lacy exited the game, James Starks managed 168 total yards and a touchdown on 24 touches in the game. There's no doubt with how much the long-term affects of concussions have been in the news over the last few years that the Packers will make sure Lacy is at or near full strength before allowing him to return. The good news for Lacy's owners is that he was on the sidelines at practice on Wednesday, so at least he's around the team and not sitting at home.
