Packers RB Eddie Lacy Needs Ankle Surgery; to Go On IR

Eddie Lacy

Packers running back Eddie Lacy needs ankle surgery and will be placed on injured reserve, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN on Thursday.

Lacy was one of seven players ruled out of Thursday’s game against the Chicago Bears. The Packers are unsure if Lacy will miss the remainder of the season, the source said.

He was the only active halfback for the Packers in their 30-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He was playing with a sprained left ankle and was held to just 65 yards on 17 carries.

With Lacy and backup James Starks, who had knee surgery earlier this week, unavailable for Thursday’s game, the Packers traded a conditional late-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for running back Knile Davis on Tuesday.
