News: Lacy (concussion) is active Sunday against the Jets, the Packers' official site reports. Impact: As expected, Lacy is available to owners, after emerging from the league's concussion protocol unscathed Thursday. However, he'll face tough sledding against a Jets defense that allowed 25 yards on the ground to the Raiders in Week 1, while allowing the fewest yards per carry (3.7) in 2013.(RotoWire, )

News: Lacy (concussion) had 13 carries for 43 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Jets. Impact: It was a strange game for Green Bay, as they had to abandon the run early, trailing 21-3 in the second quarter. The Jets also have a strong rush defense, but even though Lacy had a low output, it's encouraging that he was able to handle the load after suffering a concussion last week. In fact, John Kuhn was the only other running back to record a carry Sunday, rushing for three yards on one carry.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Lacy (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: Despite suffering a concussion in the Packers' season-opening loss last Thursday, Lacy will not be forced to miss any starts. He should see his regular (heavy) workload in Sunday's game after practicing fully the last two days.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Lacy (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Afterward, coach Mike McCarthy said that the running back "practiced full. He looked ready...Eddie Lacy is cleared. He had a normal practice today." Impact: Lacy, who fit in both individual and team drills, has thus cleared the league's concussion protocol in less than a week, signifying the minor nature of the ailment. While owners will have to consider the possibility of another head injury in the future, he'll head the Packers' running-back corps in Week 2, with James Starks and DuJuan Harris providing support.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Lacy, who was knocked out of the opener with a concussion but returned to practice Thursday, is probable for Sunday's game. Impact: Lacy was held to 34 yards on 12 carries against the tough Seahawks defense in last week's 36-16 loss. He won the Offensive Rookie of the Year award last season after rushing for more than 1,100 yards and 11 touchdowns. (STATS, 2:33pm)
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Lacy (concussion) was in full pads during Thursday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: Donning full pads generally implies that contact will be made, and according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Lacy has in fact cleared the league's concussion protocol, thereby giving owners the all-clear to utilize him in Week 2 against the Jets.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 10, 2014
News: Coach Mike McCarthy told Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin after Wednesday's practice that Lacy is nearing "the end [of the concussion protocol]. He's progressed very quickly." Impact: Lacy's very presence on the sideline at practice forecasts an imminent return, perhaps as early as Thursday. However, the final hurdle in the protocol remains in his path, and until he clears it, James Starks and DuJuan Harris will hold down the fort at running back.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 10, 2014
News: Lacy (concussion) attended but didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Impact: After suffering a concussion in the season-opening loss in Seattle last Thursday, Lacy was afforded more time than normal to recover. He'll have two additional days to attempt to practice, but note that he has yet to pass completely through the league's concussion protocol. If he fails to do so, James Starks would likely handle much of the workload, with DuJuan Harris providing support in the rushing attack.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Lacy (concussion) reported to the Packers' training facility Monday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: This news does not provide much of an update on Lacy's health, but it is a good sign that he was feeling good enough to report to the office Monday. While things appear to be moving in the right direction for Lacy, he will still need to be cleared to play in Week 2.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 5, 2014
News: Lacy (concussion) has already cleared the first step in the NFL's concussion protocol, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. Impact: Between this news and the fact that Lacy didn't lose consciousness during Thursday's game, it seems his concussion may be a relatively minor one. Still, his Week 2 status remains in question, as recovery from concussions is rather unpredictable, and Lacy missed a game with one last season. If he isn't ready by next Sunday, the starting assignment against Rex Ryan's Jets will presumably go to James Starks, with DuJuan Harris likely working as the backup.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 5, 2014
News: Late in the game Thursday, running back Eddie Lacy retreated to the locker room with what coach Mike McCarthy said was a concussion Impact: Last season, Lacy ran for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns.(STATS, 11:01am)
