Packers running back Eddie Lacey did not participate in practice yesterday but was seen smiling on the sideline with teammates as he continues to recover from a vicious hit delivered by Washington safety Brandon Meriweather Sunday.
Lacey’s injury has allowed James Starks to step into the spotlight and has already been named this weekend’s starter against the Bengals.
Green Bay is hopeful safety Morgan Burnett could return Sunday but do not seem as hopeful about Casey Hayward’s return. Here is a look at the week’s first official injury report released by each team Wednesday afternoon.
