Injury report: Eddie Lacy back on track

By Rob Demovsky

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the past three weeks, the only practice reps Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy took came last Friday and even those were limited and not in pads.

So the fact that Lacy was back on the field for Thursday's practice is a good indication that his sprained right ankle has improved.

Lacy was officially listed as a limited participant, but he was in full pads and might be as healthy as he's been at midweek since he was injured in the Dec. 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

“Eddie looked good,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after practice. “He was limited in practice [but had a] good day's work.”

It's possible the Packers could rest Lacy on Friday to make sure he's fresh for Sunday's NFC wild-card playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.
