The Green Bay Packers better be ready for a full serving of Eddie Lacy on Sunday in the season opener against the Seattle Seahawks.
The former Packers running back could get plenty of action at Lambeau Field with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise both battling injuries this week. According to Seahawks official site, coach Pete Carroll is in a wait-and-see mode with Rawls, who was expected to share much of the heavy lifting for Seattle’s ground game with Lacy before injuring his ankle.
If Rawls can’t play or is limited on Sunday, Lacy – a second-round pick of the Packers back in 2013 – would likely start at running back.
Lacy rushed 14 times for 31 yards over three preseason games with Seattle. He started back-to-back games against the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs, to mixed reviews.
Rawls started the preseason opener and received all the snaps with the No. 1 offense before giving way to Lacy. He hurt his ankle before Seattle’s second preseason game and didn’t play again in the exhibition season.
Lacy rushed for 3,435 yards and 23 touchdowns over 51 games with the Packers.
