Eddie Lacy injury: Packers RB 'full go' at practice

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

It appears Eddie Lacy will return this week after practicing on Monday.

Green Bay's Eddie Lacy was a full participant in practice on Monday, a good sign the rookie running back is recovered from the concussion he suffered in Week 2.

Lacy missed Green Bay's Week 3 game against Cincinnati before getting last week off on a bye. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he thought Lacy practiced well and noted he went "full go" according to Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel. Assuming he doesn't suffer a setback during the week, it appears Lacy will be back on the field when Green Bay hosts the Lions.

That's good news for the Packers who have been hit hard with injuries at running back. James Starks replaced Lacy in Week 2, only to suffer a knee injury in Week 3. Rookie Johnathan Franklin took over for Starks, but he also suffered a knee injury. Lacy and Franklin participated in practice on Monday while Starks sat out.

If Lacy is healthy, he'll likely return to the starting lineup. He's rushed 15 times this season, gaining 51 yards and scoring one touchdown.
