NFL injuries, Week 17: Eddie Lacy feeling better heading into postseason

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Spor

The Packers are getting closer to full strength.

Few teams were as decimated by injuries as the Green Bay Packers were in 2013. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy fought through a hamstring injury in the final week of the season.

Lucky for the Packers, Lacy is feeling better than he did coming out of last week, according to Packer Report. WIth Rodgers and Lacy both healthy, the Packers finally have a healthy offense. The timing couldn't be better with a game against the San Francisco 49ers in the first round of the playoffs next on the schedule.

Green Bay isn't completely healthy, though. Linebacker Clay Matthews has already been ruled out for the first round of the playoffs. He had thumb surgery earlier this season and was just one of many major injuries the Packers had to get through this season. Somehow, Green Bay still managed to win the division and have gotten back to close to full strength. Missing Matthews will hurt, though.
